How To Make polish dill pickle soup

  • 1
    Melt butter in a soup pot. Add onion, saute for 2 minutes then add carrots and celery. Sauté for about 5 minutes over medium-high heat. (Don't let veggies brown.) Add garlic and cook for a couple minutes more.
  • 2
    Once veggies have softened, add potatoes, broth, grated pickle, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil and simmer the soup for 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are soft. Remove the bay leaf, and use an immersion blender to puree the soup so that about half of it is somewhat smooth.

    Stir in 1 tablespoon dill pickle juice and the dill. Taste, then add more pickle juice if desired. Salt and pepper to taste.
