So, what is pokrzywa?

Pokrzywa, also known as stinging nettle, is a leafy green plant that grows in many parts of the world, including Europe, Asia, and North America. Despite its prickly exterior, it has been used for centuries as a medicinal herb and culinary ingredient. Pokrzywa is packed with vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, and is a good source of protein, making it a popular choice for vegetarian and vegan diets. It has a slightly bitter taste that pairs well with savory dishes like soups, stews, and pasta sauces. When cooked, the stinging hairs are neutralized and the leaves become tender and delicious.
