Pickle Soup
(Zupa Ogórkowa)


3 potatoes
1 bouillon cube
1 tbsp butter
2 large pickles, finely diced
1 cup (250 ml) pickle juice
2 tbsp sour cream
1 tbsp flour


1.   Peel and cut the potatoes into half-inch (1.3 cm) cubes and boil in 2 quarts (2 l) of water along with the bouillon cube and butter.

2.   After about 20 minutes, when the potatoes start to become soft, add in the finely diced pickles and the pickle juice.

3.   In a separate bowl, combine sour cream and flour and gradually add in 3 tablespoons of the broth that is cooking on the stove. Then add this mixture back into the soup and boil.

4.   Sprinkle in salt (but taste the soup first to see if the pickle juice isn’t too strong), and garnish with some diced dill. 

You can also substitute the potatoes with rice. Skip step 1, and add 3 cups of cooked rice when the soup is done.
