    Avgolemono Soup

    Avgolemono Soup



    This is a classic Greek soup which I submitted for the January Ethnic Food Challenge!

    Avgolemono Soup:

    INGREDIENTS
    4 and 1/2 cups chicken broth
    salt and pepper
    2 tablespoons long grain rice
    2 eggs
    1/4 cup lemon juice
    6 lemon slices and tarragon springs for garnish (optional)

    DIRECTIONS:
    In a saucepan, heat chicken stock/broth. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil. Add rice to chicken stock. Cover pan and simmer 10-15 minutes or until rice is cooked.

    In a bowl, beat together eggs and lemon juice. Strain into another bowl. Add a ladleful of hot stock to egg mixture. Whisk and pour back into saucepan.

    Heat gently, stirring, 3-4 minutes or until soup thickens. Do not boil. Pour into 6 warmed soup bowls and garnish with lemon and tarragon if desired.

    I would say the consistency is a bit on the creamier side even though there is no cream or dairy at all in the recipe. I was thinking it'd be a good one for you as it's gluten-free! If you like lemons, Julie, it's really good.

    Julie, if you make it try to use the best chicken broth you can get or make your own. I used canned broth which is fine but i think it will have a much richer flavor with homemade broth. Let me know what you think!
