This Norwegian soup is traditionally made sweet and sour by using a little sugar and vinegar. Here, the vegetables add the sweetness while creme fraiche and lemon add a bit of a tang.

- Add the vegetables to the stock in a large saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook gently for 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
- Stir in the cream and bring back to a very gentle simmer.
