About the Recipe
One of the things that I always keep in my pantry is a jar of Polish pickles ("cucumbers in brine"), they taste differently than traditional pickled cucumbers.
This recipe for Polish pickle soup or zupa ogórkowa (ZOO-pah aw-goorr-KAW-vah) is so easy to make and the best part is that it can be made with leftover vegetables and scraps of chicken.
It is super healthy, with lots of vegetables like carrots, potatoes, parsnips, celery and this version is based on chicken scraps broth, that I also usually have in my freezer.
What I love about this soup is that it can be made fully vegan and vegetarian in only a few little changes. I sometimes make it with meat, but I also love it’s vegetarian and vegan versions.
