Nettle topped flat breads

We’ve been eating these regularly over the last few months and they’re still as great tasting as ever!  Nettles are incredibly nutritious so give them a try!


For the flat breads:

  • 1/3 cup of flour per flat bread
  • Seasoning
  • Water

For the topping:

  • 2 red onions finely chopped
  • 400g of prepared nettles
  • Lemon juice
  • 70g Parmesan

How to make the nettle topped flat breads

  • Mix the flour with the seasoning and then slowly add cold water to make a dough
  • Cut the dough into equal sized portions, roll each one into a ball and then flatten to about 5mm thick
  • Cook the flat breads on a gentle heat

  • Fry the onions until they are caremalised, about 10 to 15 minutes
  • Prepare the nettles by plunging them into boiling water and then refresh in cold water and then squeeze out the water
  • Add the nettles to the onion mixture
  • Add a squeeze of lemon juice
  • Remove the mixture from the pan and add most of the parmesan cheese
  • Pile the mixture on top of the cooked flat breads
  • Sprinkle with the rest of the cheese and some more lemon juice

We identify, collect and cook with a wide range of plants on our 1 Day Spring Forage.  You can see loads of photos from that, and all of our other courses, on our Facebook page.
