Nettle Crisps

VegetarianVeganDairy FreeGluten Free

Savoury, tasty and very good for you.

Serves : 1+
Prep : 3 minutes
Cook : 1 minute
  • Nettle leaves from plants that are not in flower.
  • Oil
  • Salt and pepper


There are two methods for these crisps, one healthier than the other.

Spray the leaves with oil or spray butter and cook in a hot oven until crisp, about 3-5mins, season and eat immediately.

The other method is to deep fry the leaves, for seconds, season and serve.


Nettles are a superfood and this is a fun way to get kids to eat greens.

    Marcus… So do I. Weird. Making them now.

  3. Vikki Jones says:

    Can these be stored at all? I want to make some for the husband to take to work, but it would mean making them the day before…will that work or will they spoil?

    1. Eric Biggane says:

      Nettle crisps should be eaten straight away for crispness, if you could keep them dry somehow it might work.

  4. Tod says:

    I too like the tingling feeling once the initial ‘pain’ has gone.
    Although I doubt that I will enjoy being “stung on my tongue”…

    How hot is a hot oven in this situation?

    1. Eric Biggane says:

      As hot as you can get your oven.
