Dill Pickle Soup

Is there anything more comforting than a bowl of soup? And if there’s anything we need more of right now, it’s comfort.

It’s National Soup Swap Day, so I’m sharing a new family favorite – Dill Pickle Soup. We are all pickle lovers and absolutely devoured this. And then the kids asked me to make it again. And again.

This soup is very much like a cream of potato – with pickle juice replacing some of the liquid and chopped pickles stirred in. The result is a completely addictive bowl you’ll lick clean.

Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 lb. russet potatoes, peeled and quartered
  • 1 cup chopped carrots, diced small
  • 1/2 cup chopped dill pickles, diced small (I used Claussen)
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tablespoons water
  • 1 cup dill pickle juice (I used Claussen)
  • 3/4 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper

As the pickles are the star of the show here, it’s important to use the pickles you like best. I prefer Claussen Pickles because I really love how crunchy they are in addition to having a great flavor.

My pickle juice was salty enough that I didn’t feel any additional salt was necessary, but depending on what you use the final dish may need some salt. Make sure you taste and adjust accordingly before serving!

Directions

  • In a large saucepan, combine the chicken broth, potatoes and carrots and bring to a boil. Cook until the potatoes are tender.
  • Stir in the pickles and continue to cook.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, sour cream, and water to form a thick paste. Drop into the soup, 2 tablespoons at a time, whisking well to combine between each addition.
  • When the soup cream mixture is all incorporated, whisk in the pickle juice, Old Bay, and pepper.
  • Serve topped with sliced pickles.
