Stinging Nettle or (Ortiga in Spanish) is a super food with many medicinal and nutritious benefits. You can drink it as hot tea or put some leaves in your smoothie and blend it up. It’s a mild tasting plant, but super beneficial.
Caution - Be very careful before you touch it. It will sting you really bad, so wear long plastic gloves.
