Pea Soup – hernekeitto – is a stable in Finland. The army serves it. It is economical and it is nutritious. It is also good and actually probably a comfort food for quite a many Finn. It can be made totally without meat and, believe me, I don’t miss the meat at all. Pea Soup is generally served with oven pancake – pannari – as dessert. It is on many often on Thursdays. Yes, I have been to a lovely restaurant many times on a Thursday just to eat this and a slice or two of the pancake with strawberry jam and whipped cream. And a cup of coffee. And I have invited friends and family on these occasions to join me… Long discussions over good food… But, yes, I have made it at home too!
