Instant Pot Dill Pickle Soup Recipe

Dill Pickle Soup (Zupa Ogórkowa) is a traditional Polish soup made with potatoes, sour pickles and plenty of sour cream.

It’s rich, creamy and tangy with slightly sour notes. It’s very similar to a potato soup, but with a distinct pickle flavor that will make your mouth pucker.

I’m not a huge fan of sour pickles so we opted for our personal favorite – Dill Pickles.

I also wanted a bit more protein in our soup, so we cooked up some sausages to add another dimension of flavor and texture to the soup. You can skip adding the sausages, if you prefer.

Can you freeze this Dill Pickle Soup? Yes! Store in airtight freezer containers and allow to thaw completely before gently reheating. You can store this soup in the freezer for up to three months. (This set of freezer containers is a crazy bargain.)

Can this Dill Pickle Soup be made in the Crockpot? Yes, but unlike my favorite crockpot soups, this recipe involves adding ingredients at specific stages and is not one that you can simply “dump” all of the ingredients in and let it do it’s thing. If you want to adapt this recipe for the crockpot, the cook time is all that will change to be 3 hours on high or 5-6 hours on low. Add the pickles at the halfway mark and you will need to stir in the sour cream thickener at the end.

How to Make Dill Pickle Soup in the Instant Pot

Place 1 Tablespoon of butter in the Instant Pot and set to sauté.

Once the butter is melted and bubbling, add the sausages and cook until well browned, about 4 minutes.

Turn off the Instant Pot and add the chicken broth, potatoes, carrots and remaining butter.

Secure the lid and set to the soup setting for 8 minutes. Natural release.

While you are waiting for the Instant Pot to finish releasing steam, in a medium bowl, stir together the sour cream, flour and water.

Remove the lid from the Instant Pot and set to sauté again.

Stir in the pickles, pickle juice and sour cream mixture.

Season with Old Bay seasoning and cayenne pepper. Allow the mixture to come to a boil before turning off the Instant Pot.

  1. You have a picture of fresh dill but it is not mentioned in the recipe. At least I do not think so. Is the dill just for garnish or is it part of the recipe?

    1. Hi Barbara,
      We just used it as a garnish. (Mostly to communicate in the pictures what the flavor profile would be because just to look at the plain soup, most people would assume it’s just potato-flavored – which it most definitely isn’t!)
