Home About Swedish Traditions Pea Soup and Pancakes
Pea Soup and Pancakes Print

Pea soup and pancakes is a Thursday tradition in Sweden.  The tradition dates back to the 15th century when Sweden was primarily Catholic and a large meal was served the night before the Friday fast. Pea soup and pancakes is still served on Thursdays in restaurants and workplace cafeterias, as well as in the Swedish military.  Nowadays it's common to serve the soup with warm Punsch, a sweet arrack flavored spirit.
