The best soup in the world

Well, hello there. It's been a while since I posted something. 
Frankly I have been busy neglecting my health by working and studying. 
But now spring has arrived and I have more time and energy to put on deliscious and healthy food.
First harvest in the garden comes from weed, the nettles. Use gloves and a scissor to pick them, you surely know why. Nettles makes a perfect tasty and healthy soup, filled with vitamins and minerals.

Nettle soup
Pick 3 L lightly packed nettles. Wash them in the sink with lots of water.
Boil a large pan with water and boil the nettles a few minutes.
Drain off the water, but save it to water the plants (great fertilizer)
Chop the nettles finely in a blender
Take the large pan and melt a large piece of butter (or coconut oil)
Whisk down 3 tablespoons of flour in the melted butter
Add 2-3 liters of boiling water while stirring
Add vegetable broth (3 chunks or 1 dl liquid)
Add the nettles and boil for 5 minutes
Give the soup some spices, pepper and chili
Eventually add salt.
Serve with egg halves
