Warming Winter Soups & Stews to Cozy Up With

Found in |


Norwegian Winter Soups

Winter is here in the north and that means lots of snow and chilly temperatures. Simple, warm, and comforting meals are always welcome, which is where good winter soups and stews come in. Rich, hearty, creamy, nutritious, and full of flavor – whether teeming with vegetables, fish or meats – you’ll find something here for everyone.

From the sea or land, these winter soups and stews reflect the availability of produce. As the growing season outdoors has concluded, we look to our storage of root vegetables, apples, and herbs for bulk. Wild meats, such as reindeer and moose, are more common in our mountain region. The sea, of course, is full of abundance with winter being the high season for many of the species found there.

I hope these winter soups and stews will keep you warm and happy!
