Pea Soup

READY IN: 25hrs 15mins
Recipe by kolibri

You don't get much more traditional Finnish food than pea soup on every Thurday followed by an oven pancake with strawberry jam. The tradition stems from times when Friday was a Catholic fast day so on Thursdays you needed to eat something that would keep you going for an extra day.

Very easy and tasty pea soup! I used turkey bacon and also added a clove of garlic. Bought some sour dough croutons to add to the finished soup, so good!
