  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups unflavored soy or almond milk
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 medium Russet potatoes peeled and cut into 1/2 inch pieces (about 3 1/2 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped dill pickles
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh dill plus extra for garnish
  • 1/2 cup dill pickle juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  4. Remove from heat and stir in the pickle juice and the dill. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  5. Ladle into bowls and serve, optionally with a few pickle slices for garnish and a sprinkling of fresh dill and parsley.
