I loved this and it was very easy to make. Rather than pour into a blender I used my hand blender right in the pot and blended it until I felt it was the right consistency. I did feel I wanted it a touch thicker so I added a little cornstarch to thicken and it worked great. I will make this again, even if my 7 year old didn't care for it...oh, over the summer we grew dill. I saved it by chopping and freezing in an ice cube tray. I just popped a few ice cubes right in the soup as it cooked.

Yummy soup, it's thick and rich tasting with the sour cream. I changed the dill Basil and that was dried. I used veggie broth and the optional carrots. I took the long way around and used pearl barley, not pre-cooked. It all turned out perfectly. It made a great dinner along side a small salad.

I made this for PAC Fall 2006. You'd better like dill for this one! And I do. :) This was yummy. I used dried dill, onions instead of shallots, and added the carrots. I already had barley cooked so this went together in no time. This is a wonderful soup for fall! Thank you for sharing.

Very good soup. Next time I would use less sour cream, as I found it a bit overpowering. I added some cooked ham and used dried dill.
