Nettle Oatmeal (Vegan)

  • Preparation: 5 min
  • Cooking: 10 min
  • Ready in: 15 min



  1. Chop nettles and grate ginger. Then start cooking them in water in on low-medium heat for 5-10minutes.
  2. Using a hand-held mixer, puree the nettles, add oats, milk, a dash of salt, and stir it together. Cook it for a few more minutes so the tastes combine. If you used too much water, let it simmer until it evaporates to a thicker consistency.
  3. In the meantime, toast walnuts lightly.
  4. Slice the apple and arrange it however you like, and top with the walnuts. I used an iron supplement in form of a syrup that is also sweetened and poured it on top.
