Step By Step Instructions
How to Make Dill Pickle Soup
STEP 1: Heat 2 tablespoons of the butter and the olive oil together in a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the carrots, celery and onion and cook until the veggies are tender, about 7 minutes.
STEP 2: Remove the veggies from the pot and set aside. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the pot. Add the garlic and cook until it isfragrant, about 1 minute.
STEP 3: Stir in the flour, dill, thyme, oregano, salt, pepper and paprika, and cook until lightly browned.
STEP 4: Add the chicken stock and pickle juice. Stir until all ingredients are well combined.
STEP 5: Bring to a boil over high heat and stir in the potatoes. Cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until the potatoes are soft.
STEP 6: Reduce the heat to medium-low. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup right in the pot. The soup should be mostly creamy, but with some visible chunks of potatoes.
STEP 7: Stir in the sour cream and heavy cream until well incorporated and smooth.
STEP 8: Add the sautéed vegetables back to the pot, along with the pickles. Let simmer for an additional 15 minutes. Garnish with green onions before serving.
