This recipe for Creamy Brussels Sprouts Soup is an entry into the PAISLEY FARM HOLIDAY BLOGGER RECIPE CHALLENGE recipe contest. PAISLEY FARM sent me free products to use in the creation of the recipe but the recipe, narrative and photos are my own.

It’s hard not to get excited for mail delivery this time of year. Christmas cards, packages you forgot you ordered from Amazon (oops!) and 7 jars of goodies from Paisley Farm to my doorstep.

Okay, maybe you didn’t get that package, but I did because I was invited to participate in the Paisley Farm Holiday Blogger Recipe Challenge. I accepted and my entry is this Brussels Sprouts Soup Recipe.

The inspiration for this soup came from one of my favorite soups you don’t often see on a menu: Dill Pickle Soup. It’s popular in Polish restaurants and I love it’s creamy texture, chunks of dill pickle and tangy flavor. Paisley Farm will evaluate this recipe along with other entries for creativity and taste.

I’ve been on kind of a brussels sprouts kick lately ~ some may even say obsessed so a pot of hearty, creamy tangy soup loaded with Dilled Brussels Sprouts and flavored with vinegar and dill seemed like an obvious choice.

Sour cream gives this soup its creamy texture. There are bites of dilled brussels sprouts in every bite plus chunks of potatoes and carrots and zesty flavor throughout.

From the Bean Salads to Cauliflower to Sweet Pickled Beets to the Dilled Brussels Sprouts used in this recipe, these foods are Paisley Farm fresh and ready to serve right from the jar.

In a small bowl blend the flour, sour cream, juice from the jar and dill then temper the mixture by whisking in ¼ cup of the hot soup broth. Pour the tempered sour cream blend into the soup 2 tablespoons at a time whisking constantly until it’s all combined.

Simmer uncovered 3-5 minutes until it thickens. Fold in the butter, stirring until combined then taste and adjust salt and pepper as you like. If you’d like a tangier soup, add more brussels sprouts juice 1 tablespoon at a time.
