  3. Comments: This is the second only soup I've posted on the site without trying first - not for lack of interest, but for lack of ingredients. Again, many thanks for this traditional Icelandic recipe to Nanna Rognvaldardottir, author of Matarast (or possibly, Love of Food), her comprehensive cooking encyclopedia which includes 1,600 recipes and some 3,000 entries. She says about this soup which it was made of "a staple of traditional Icelandic cuisine which is little used now - Iceland moss, not a moss really, but a type of lichen which was much used in many kinds of dishes - breads, soups, porridge, meat dishes, etc."
