I live in Finland but am not Finnish. For those who think this soup weak, bland, or with non-mixing veggies... this is a traditional Finnish soup made with what is on hand. It is served as a started for a long summer meal that usually includes -after- steamed potatoes with marinated herrings of various styles, smoked fishes, salads, and the like. It is a bland soup, no chicken stock or anything, but using, as KEY factor, all FRESH vegetables. True baby carrots, not shaved ones, fresh peas that we shell, cauliflower or broccoli, and young potatoes wit barely any skin on them. What is delicious about it is the sheer wonder of the flavors of every vegetable. If you do not use fresh, do not make this. It just won't work.
