Vegan Finnish Summer Soup (A Brit in Helsinki) is a nice soup to try, it looks quite tasty for winter too. It uses new potatoes, carrots, cauliflower, spring oinions and peas, all ingredients that are easy to find anywhere. It’s cook in a strong veggie stock with palm-oil-free vegan butter, then thickened with flour and vegan cream. Serve with lemon zest, ground white pepper and chopped dill.
Many people in Finland are vegan, with around 17% of young people saying they don’t eat dairy, and 2% of the popular being fully vegan. You can find vegan food everywhere, and the new Prime Minister is one of the world’s youngest, committed to animal welfare and environmental policy changes. Sanna Marin is even a vegetarian herself.
