Soup of the Day

Trianon used to be located on the the corner of Allen Rd. and 92nd Ave. If you have ever been you probably tried their Dill Pickle soup. Since the resturant closed almost 5 years ago or so I have not had the soup since. In October when I went to Lewiston we were looking up soup recipies and I thought I would try searching for the Dill Pickle Soup Recipe.

I found it!

The chef has opened his own resturant, Otto and Anita's Bavarian Restaurant located in Multnomah Village.

Last night I decided to take a shot at making the soup. If it didn't turn out well at least I tried.

It was amazing. If you like pickles and you like soup you will love it. It sounds crazy but trust me it is one of the best soups ever.

Here is the recipe and a link.

Dill Pickle Soup
6-8 Servings

3 Tbls. Butter
3 oz. Onion (cut julienne)
1/2 c. Flour
4 Lg. Dill Pickles (cut julienne)
1 1/2 c. pickle marinade
4 c. Water
2 Tbls. Dill Weed (fresh or dried)
1/2 c. Whipping Cream
Salt, White Pepper & Good Quality Chicken Base to taste

Melt Butter in a large pot over medium heat, add onion & saute until soft. Reduce heat, stir in flour DO NOT BROWN. In a separate pot combine water and pickle marinade, bring to a boil, whisk into the first pot at once. Increase heat and bring to a boil stirring constantly, until soup thickens. Season with chicken base, salt and pepper. Add pickles and dill, stir in cream for desired texture.
