Bet you never thought about making soup from pickles before. Check it out!
So, how do you feel about pickle soup?
To be honest, at first I was really not sure. I mean, pickles in soup? Like is that a normal thing? Apparently, it is totally normal and surprisingly, it is so good.
This soup has such a great flavor that you can literally crave it. It’s so cozy and perfect for the cold January days ahead.
For my recipe, I made the soup in the slow cooker to keep everything simple and easy. I love slow-cooker soups, especially because I can come home from a long day and dinner is ready to go... and the house smells so good! Nothing more needs to be done other than eating. YES.
Okay, so here is how we're going to make this. Gather your ingredients.
Melt the butter in the microwave and whisk in the flour.
Whisk in a half-cup of chicken broth.
To the bowl of the slow cooker, add the remaining chicken broth and the butter-flour mixture, and whisk it until it's combined. Add the pickle juice, pickles, potatoes, carrots, Old Bay™ seasoning, salt, pepper and cayenne.
Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours, or on high for 4-6 hours. Then stir in the sour cream and cook another 5 minutes.
Ladle into bowls.
Serve warm with some crisp pita chips.
A beautiful and delicious soup!
