Avgolemono Soup

Yield about 2 quarts


  • 2 quarts chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup uncooked regular rice
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice

How to Make It

  1. Place broth in a small Dutch oven; bring to a boil. Add rice. Reduce heat; cover and cook 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Remove from heat.

  2. Place eggs in a small mixing bowl; beat with a wire whisk until light and foamy. Gradually add lemon juice, beating well; add 2 cups hot soup, beating constantly.

  3. Add egg mixture to soup, beating constantly. Place over low heat, and bring just to a boil. (Do not boil because soup will curdle.)

  4. Ladle soup into individual serving bowls; serve warm.
