Pickle Soup

Brandy Bender


This recipe is Amazing! I found this recipe on Pinterest and tweeked it a little because I didn't have some of the ingredients the original recipe called for. If you are a pickle lover I highly recommend this, Everyone in my family slightly turned their nose up at this recipe because come on... It does kind of sound a little odd but once they actually tried it they fell in love with it.

How to Make Pickle Soup


  1. In a large pot, combine broth, potatoes, carrots and butter. Bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes are tender. Add pickles and continue to boil.
  2. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, sour cream and water, making a paste. Vigorously whisk sour cream mixture (2 tablespoons at a time) into soup. (This will also break up some of the potatoes which is okay. You might see some initial little balls of flour form, but between the whisking and boiling all will disappear. Don't panic.)
  3. Add pickle juice, seasonings and hot sauce. Cook 5 more minutes and remove from heat. Serve Immediately.
  4. *All pickle juice is not created equal. Some is saltier than others, Taste your soup after adding pickle juice and final seasonings. It's possible you will not need any salt or would prefer more or less.
