Norwegian Spinach Soup
A creamed spinach soup flavored with nutmeg. Top each bowl with a hard-cooked egg slice for flavor and visual interest.

Nässelsoppa - Nettle Soup
Stinging nettles are found in few cuisines outside Sweden. Here's a soup to make from nettle leaves.

Orkdal Soup
A lamb and rice soup with carrots, cabbage and a bit of onion.

Sandvik's Stew
The proportions of meat, potatoes, carrots and onion are up to your taste. The use of canned cream of mushroom and cream of tomato soup makes this easy to throw into the crockpot before you leave for the day.

Scandinavian Yellow Pea Soup (pressure cooker version)
This version is for quick preparation: no overnight soaking of the dried peas, and quick cooking too. Uses a pressure cooker to speed things up.

Scandinavian Yellow Pea Soup
This recipe includes carrots, potatoes, onions, Danish or Canadian bacon, and Vienna sausages.

Trondheim Soup
More of a dessert soup, this is made with rice, raisins, whipping cream, sugar and cinnamon.

Yellow Pea Soup (pureed version)
This pureed cream version is not exactly the Swedish style, but some people prefer their pea soup this way.

Yellow Pea Soup (Vegetarian)
A vegetarian version of yellow pea soup.

Yellow Pea Soup (Ärtsoppa)
An authentic Swedish-style recipe, just peas, water, salt, onions and a bit of herbs. You can add pork or lamb if you don't want the vegetarian version. ("Port" is a misprint for "pork" in the English recipe, which is below the Swedish-language recipe.)

Yellow Pea Soup - for 100
The flavorings make this one more Italian then Scandinavian, but you could adapt that if you'd like. The unique charm of this recipe is that it's great for those potlucks and church suppers where you need to serve 100.

Yellow Pea Soup
Another yellow pea soup recipe, with some notes on the Thursday tradition. Flavored with ginger and with marjoram or thyme. Potatoes, carrots and bacon are optional.
