Finnish Summer Soup

1 small cauliflower (300 grams)
1 bunch new carrots (appr 200 grams)
200 grams fresh peas, from pods, or sugar snaps
300 grams small (1 1/2 in.) new potatoes
1/2 liter water
3 tbsp butter
3/4 liter milk (not fat free)
1/2 tsp salt
fresh parsley

Clean cauliflower, leave as many green leaves as possible. Divide into florets. Scratch the peel off carrots and slice them. Take peas out of pods, or rinse sugar snaps. Rub the floppy peel bits off the potatoes, but do not peel them with a knife, use a vegetable brush. Cut each potato in 4 pieces.

Bring the water to boil. Add carrots, let boil 3-4 minutes. Add cauliflower florets and potatoes. Add sugar snaps/peas. Boil until they are soft but still firm. Add butter and milk, bring to boil. Do not boil vigorously, the milk might separate. Add salt to taste; it should be a bit sweetish, a bit salty. Sprinkle with parsley, serve hot.
