Default Nettles with corn flour

It is Spring and I want to let you know a season Romanian dish


20oz of fresh nettles (chopped)
1 medium onion
wild garlic - hasmatzuki - to taste (can be replaced with 1-2 garlic cloves)
1/3 can white wine
3-4 table spoons olive oil
5 table spoons of corn flour
1 table spoon wheat flour


Put nettles to be boiled together with a sprig of lovage and an onion cut in two.

When you think nettles are boiled, put them in a new bowl, remove the onion but keep the water. Add corn flour and a wheat flour over the nettles and rub the mixture with a wooden spoon until you make a paste. Chop wild garlic and lovage and add to the paste and stir well.

Thin (dilute) the composition with some of the water where nettles were boiled and white wine.

In a saucepan heat the olive oil and add the nettles thinned composition. Cook a little longer until corn flour is ready

My advice: Try it, you wont be sorry
