Vibrantly green stinging nettles are a perfect match for golden yellow butter! Now that the snow is a distant memory and the growing season is well underway, I am now continuously provided with a lovely assortment of ingredients to add to my repertoire. Nettles, which are proudly my favorite leafy green, is taking on many shapes and forms in my kitchen. From gnocchi to falafels, these stinging greens make their way onto my dinner table every few days.
