St Lucia Day Swedish Meal

Hot Mulled Cider
Sparkling Pear Cider

Cold Course
Smoked Salmon
Vinegar Potato Salad
Pickled Cucumbers*
Pickled Mustard Herring
Cole Slaw
Lingon Berry Preserves
Limpa and/or Flatbread

Hot Course
Broiled White Fish with Dill
Lingon berries
Boiled Potatoes
Roasted Beets
Swedish Brown Beans*

Vegan Rice Pudding* served with lingon berries
Saffron Lucia Buns*

*We'll see if I get around to linking any of these to recipes, but a lot of it is self explanatory and possibly even prepackaged.
**This meal would contain more meat and cream sauces, etc., if it were prepared outside of the Orthodox fasting season of Advent.  In fact, we'll have something similar to this as our main Christmas dinner, which will include a mustard cream gravy, potato sausage, and pot roast.  But I'll stop there!


  1. If you have a fasting recipe for the St. Lucia buns, I hope you do post it. Looks like a wonderful feast!

  2. Wow -- You're ambitious!
    Love, Mom

  3. No, I don't have a fasting version. Since only one of us is fasting completely (that would be Fr. Andrew), we went ahead and made the dairy version. I'd like to experiment with a fasting version though!

  4. Mom, I didn't make or serve everything on this list.

    We ended up having
    ~Hot Pear Cinnamon Cider (TJs, already mixed!)
    ~smoked salmon (IKEA, prepackaged)
    ~pickled cukes (homemade)
    ~mustard herring (IKEA)
    ~coleslaw (homemade, but not with a recipe to speak of)
    ~flatbread (IKEA)
    ~boiled potatoes (homemade)
    ~swedish brown beans (homemade, but easy)
    ~broiled fish (easy)
    ~lingon berries
    ~pepparkakor (IKEA), with more cider

    It was plenty!
