Suaasat is a traditional Greenlandic soup. It is traditionally made from seal meat, but can also be made from whale, caribou, or seabirds.

The soup often includes onions and potatoes and is simply seasoned with salt, black pepper, and bay leaves. The soup is often thickened with rice or by soaking barley in the water overnight so that the starches leach into the water.
