Fresh as the Summer – Finnish Summer Soup

Light lunches are the best be it summer or fall. This is in case you do not want to snooze off  and take a nap after eating. Oh well,  sometimes you do want to and summer naps are oh so delightful. Believe it or not the summer weather has not allowed a nap outside under the apple trees.

imageThis summery vegetable soup is made with the seasons vegetables – usually tiny potatoes, carrots just a bit bigger than your fingers, peas and cauliflower.


For four portions you will need

6 small potatoes, 4 small carrots, 2 dl peas, half a small cauliflower, 0,3 dl water, 0,5 dl milk, salt, white pepper, 2 tbsp butter, chopped chives

Brush the veggies and cut them into small pieces (potato cubes, carrot buttons, chunks of cauliflower).

Boil the water and start with cooking the potatoes. Add the carrot and cauliflower after 5 minutes. Add the milk and the white pepper. Let come to boil and cook for 5 minutes. Add the chopped chives and peas. Cook until all the veggies are done. Add the butter and salt if needed.

Enjoy with rye bread.
