    Jostlori's Note:

    This smooth, savory soup is Sweden's national dish. It's a Thursday night staple for everyone, including royalty. In fact, Yellow Pea Soup was used to assassinate King Eric XIV on a Thursday night in the late 1500's, where he was served a bowl laced with arsenic. This soup is traditionally made with yellow peas, which need to soak overnight. The soup is normally eaten with Swedish pancakes as dessert. From a cookbook "The Swedish Table". PREP TIME DOESN'T INCLUDE OVERNIGHT SOAK FOR PEAS

    1. 1
      In a medium pot, combine olive oil, onion, carrot and celery. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the veggies are tender, about 5-8 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add peas, broth, water, pork shank and bay leaves. Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer, and cook until peas are tender, about 1 hour. Add more water if needed. Season with salt and pepper.
    3. 3
      Remove shank and take meat off the bone, discard the bone. Cut or shred the meat and set aside.
    4. 4
      Using an immersion blender, blend the soup until smooth. You can also use a regular blender, but work in batches and don't overfill.
    5. 5
      The soup will be very thick - add more water to thin as necessary. Adjust seasoning.
    6. 6
      Return the meat to the soup.
    7. 7
      While the peas are cooking, combine the finely chopped tomatoes, the garlic and the olive oil in a small bowl. Let marinade while peas are cooking, about one hour.
    8. 8
      When ready to serve, ladle soup into wide soup bowls and add a generous tablespoon of marinated tomatoes in the center.
