Greek Egg Lemon Soup
- Yield 8 to 10 servings
Combine just three main ingredients—rice, eggs and chicken broth—for an easy reduced-fat soup.
"When raising my five children, we enjoyed nothing more than trips to the Parthenon Greek Restaurant in Chicago. I tried to duplicate our favorite recipes, including this one, at home."
- 6 cups chicken stock
- 1/4 cup converted rice
- 2 eggs, beaten
- Juice of 1 lemon
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- In a large saucepan, bring chicken stock to a simmer. Stir in rice and simmer for 15 minutes or until rice is soft.
- Combine eggs with lemon juice. Slowly add juice mixture to simmering broth. To prevent curdling, do not boil. The egg will cook instantly. Season with salt and pepper.
