Loaded Dill Pickle Soup

Makes 2 litres



What you'll need:


1/2 lb. bacon, diced

2 medium onions, diced

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 small cauliflower, cut into small florets

3 medium russet potatoes, peeled & cut into 1 inch cubes

2 1/2-3 cups chicken stock

1 1/2 cups dill pickle brine (from the pickle jar)

1/2 cup heavy cream

3 large dill pickles, diced

Black pepper, to taste (you likely won't need any salt because the pickle bring is salty enough)

1/4 cup chopped fresh dill

Sliced green onion, for topping


Fare Thee Well Loaded Dill Pickle Soup


Steps:


Crisp 1/2 lb. of diced bacon in a large pot over medium heat. Once the bacon is crispy, transfer the bacon bits to a bowl lined with paper towel & set aside. Drain the bacon grease from the pot then add 2 diced onions to the pot, cook until translucent. Add in 3 cloves of minced garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add the florets of 1 small cauliflower to the pot, along with 3 medium diced russet potatoes. Add 2 1/2 cups of chicken stock and 1 1/2 cups of pickle brine to the pot. Stir to combine and bring to a boil. Once boiling reduce to a simmer and cook for 12-15 minutes or until potatoes and cauliflower are tender.


Transfer a few ladle-fulls of the soup to a blender and blend until smooth. (Alternatively, you can use an immersion blender to blend the soup up a bit. If using an immersion blender don't blend the soup completely smooth, you still want a lot of chunks.) Once you've blended the ladle-fulls, add the contents of the blender back into the pot. At this point, if you find the soup too thick you can add in the remaining 1/2 cup chicken stock, keeping in mind that once you add the cream it will get thicker. Stir in 1/2 cup heavy cream, 3 chopped large dill pickles, crispy bacon bits and black pepper, to taste (you likely won't need salt as the pickle brine is very salty), bring back to a simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes stirring often. Remove pot from heat, stir in 1/4 fresh chopped dill.


Ladle soup into bowls, garnish with more chopped dill & green onion, if desired.



Soups up, my friends!
