♥Finnish Vegetable Soup (Kesäkeitto) with Summer Vegetables♥


Several years ago my favorite spot for lunch, Cafe' du Voyageur, featured this soup. I thought - naw, it doesn't sound all that great. My friend, Sherry, ordered it and just raved about the flavor so I ordered a small cup. After that, I was hooked. Make this soup and I guarantee you that it will become a family favorite! Served with warm crusty bread, your tummy will l♥ve you!

Ingredients
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 small carrots, sliced
  • 1 medium potato, cubed
  • 3/4 cup fresh or frozen green peas 
  • 1 cup cut fresh or frozen green beans
  • 1/4 small cauliflower, separated into florets
  • 2 ounces fresh spinach, cut up (2 cups)
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 2 tablespoon flour
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper 
  • 2 tablespoons snipped dill weed
Directions
  • Heat water, carrots, potato, peas, beans and cauliflower to boiling in 3-quart saucepan; reduce heat. Cover and simmer until vegetables are almost tender, 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Add spinach; cook uncovered about 1 minute. Mix 1/4 cup of the milk and the flour; stir gradually into vegetable mixture. Simmer and stir 1 minute.
  • Stir in remaining milk, the whipping cream, salt and pepper. Heat just until hot. Garnish each serving with dill weed.
