Creamy Nettle and Potato Soup
At Manka's Inverness Lodge, in Inverness, California, chef Daniel DeLong uses local wild stringing nettles to give a tangy flavor to this light, creamy soup. Because nettles are prickly, use gloves while working with them. If nettles are unavailable, substitute fresh spinach or a combination of parsley and sorrel. Plus: More Soup Recipes and Tips
The soup can be refrigerated for 2 days.
A lively, straightforward and not-too-rich Chardonnay with no oak will highlight the creamy texture of this soup without overwhelming the delicate flavor. Choose a light bottling with notes of melon and apple.
