Creamy Dill Pickle Soup combines grated dill pickles with potatoes, onions, celery, carrots and garlic in a creamy broth that is perfectly seasoned. Family and friends alike just love this most unusual soup. I love to serve it with Easy Parmesan Herb Skillet Rolls or Triple Cheese Garlic Bread.
This unusual soup is a must try and one of my all time favorites. The dill pickle taste in this soup is very subtle and never overpowering. The coriander, turmeric and cumin really help tame and complement the dill pickle superbly. It is quick and easy to come together. You can have this ready for your family in about 30 minutes.
How do you make Dill Pickle Soup?
Start by heating a little olive oil in a dutch oven or heavy stock pot. Next add the onions, celery and carrots and cook for about 4-5 minutes. Then add the garlic, coriander, turmeric, cumin, pepper and dill weed. Cook for 1 minute stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium low and sprinkle with flour cooking for 1 minute while stirring continuously.
Now stir in the chicken broth, pickles and potatoes cooking for about 15 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Finally stir in the cream and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the soup is hot. Serve promptly.
Helpful tips for making Dill Pickle Soup
- For best results use Yukon Gold or red skinned as they are waxier than their Russet cousins and they will not break down in the soup.
- This recipe calls for about three large dill pickles or about six mini dill pickles. I personally like the mini dill pickles as they have less seeds.
- I grate the pickles using the small grate side of a box grater but you can also chop them very fine.
- If you are watching your fat and calories omit the cream. The soup will still be delicious albeit not as white and a little less creamy.
- Don’t forget to fish out and discard the bay leaves. They are sharp on the edges and could cut your mouth or pose a choking hazard.
- Delicious additions to this soup are ham, crispy fried bacon or Homemade Croutons.
This unusual delectable soup is easy, dependable and quick enough for a weeknight meal. Put the ingredients on your shopping list today and make your family a wholesome meal that you can feel great about.
