eat your greens: nettle noodles
here is a recipe for nettle noodles (or any kind of spring greens or herbs you have) found on the goodnaturedearthling blog: Nettle Noodles 1 1/4 cup flour of your choice 2 eggs 1/2 t. salt a small handful of minced nettles Put the flour in a bowl, make a well in the middle and crack the 2 eggs in it. Add salt and minced nettles. With clean hands, work all ingredients together. When mixed, drop the noodle ball onto a floured surface and knead a few times until it becomes pliable. Roll out thinly and cut into strips. Drop into soup or boiling water and cook for 7-10 minutes depending on thickness. Very, very good and goes so perfectly with nettle pesto! You can substitute any fresh wild green such as dandelion greens for the nettles. If using culinary herbs such as sage, oregano, parsley and rosemary, cut down the amount to about 1 teaspoon.
