198. Similar to spinach
Some people use a glove to chop up the nettle before cooking and others blend them afterwards.

Throw the nettle (sans roots :D) into a pot and poor over just enough water to cover them. Bring to a boil and boil for 5 minutes. Now, we do like to use butter, flour, and garlic for texture and taste where I live, so you would actually chop up a few cloves of garlic and quickly roast it on butter, then add 2 tbsp of flower and mix for a few seconds before throwing over the nettle and water.

Also, stinging nettle makes for solid tea which is rich in potassium and iron, ironically both direly needed by people on budget diets. Just sundry them and make as any other tea.
*disclaimer: don't get too hooked on the taste, it's a light diuretic.
