And there are several types of soup. I like them all (needless to add), especially onion and asparagus.

You guys definitely know how to eat. :great:

 

When you look at a romanian recipe, you think man this thing took some time to design and prefect. The turkish influence is also there and it's delicious.

Is pea soup just a Finnish/Nordic thing? We eat it here, with mustard and usually on Thursdays. I used to like it a lot but got sick of it in the army and haven't eaten it ever since. I don't like any other soup really. :/

Yes, one of my favourites too (I live in Finland). I don't make them from scratch, always bought in cans. But I do add onion as I like to have the actual onion there, and sometimes bacon (if I can be bothered), when that needs to be compensated with extra water so it isn't too salty. Never with mustard though. Never ever ever.

Same here in Sweden and had a similar experience during my time in the Airforce, we tend to always eat pancakes as a desert afterwards though, not sure if that's more a Swe thing or if it's the same in Fin.

Yeah, pancakes as dessert. Do you have it on Thursdays too? That is the tradition here in schools and in the army too, and even in some work place restaurants.

You are a disgrace sir...

 

Just kidding :P But quite a surprise though as I thought everyone eats it with mustard. Mustard in general is excellent with for example grilled sausage and with karjalanpiirakka. (Karelian pasty in English apparently). :)

Pea and Ham soup with a ton of Sichuan pepper is my preferred poison :)

Yep, Thursdays is pea soup with mustard and pancakes as desert day, been a tradition since ages, however tradition also states that you should wash it down with some punsch (since that helps with the "gas" ) as well as have some pork to it, but that's just old traditions. Personally I tend to go with bacon and a beer instead :)

 

Edit: From wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pea_soup

Sweden and Finland 

In Sweden and Finland the soup is usually served with mustard (considered an important part of the dish) on the side, as well as extra (dried) herbs (thyme or marjoram) to be mixed into the soup at the table. The soup is then normally followed by pancakes with jam (strawberryraspberryblueberrycloudberry or similar) which are regarded more as part of the meal than as a dessert. In Sweden, the soup sometimes is accompanied by warm (usually around 37 °C) punsch as a special treat.

Consumption of pea soup in Sweden and Finland dates back to at least the 13th century, and is traditionally served on Thursdays. This is said to originate in the pre-Reformation era, as preparation for fasting on Fridays. The tradition of Thursday pea soup is common in restaurants, schools, military messes and field kitchens, as well as in homes, and it forms an unpretentious but well-liked part of social life.

The Swedish king Eric XIV (1533-1577) is said to have died after eating arsenic-poisoned pea soup.

I did not know about punsch and the help it gives to gases. I think I've ever only eaten pea soup with pork in it. As growing up my mom always made it from our own home grown peas as well and added pork. I remember the canned version of pea soup to be extremely good too, one of the rare canned foods that I have enjoyed. It was much thicker than the home made.


Nice to learn such things about a simple thing as pea soup. I might have some punsch on Shrove Tuesday, as it's apparently a some sort of tradition to have it then here on this side of the border. :)

Here in Holland we also eat pea soup, but not with mustard.

 

I make soup every weekend. Mostly chicken/tomato soup, but in winter I regularly make pea soup.
