Greek Lemon Soup

Greek Lemon Soup

This Greek lemon soup (also known as Avgolemono soup) is comforting and delicious. With only five ingredients, it's also easy to make!




2 quarts vegetable or chicken stock, preferably homemade (try our Root to Stalk Vegetable Broth)

1 pound (3 cups chopped) leeks, white and light green parts only, cleaned and sliced thin

2/3 cup rice (we used brown)

4 large eggs

2 lemons, juiced and strained, about 6 to 8 tablespoons, to taste (see note)

1 tablespoon dill, chopped, for garnish



Note: The more lemon juice you use, the saltier this soup will taste. Start with 6 tablespoons to start and taste before adding in the last two.

In a large pot, combine the stock and leeks and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes. Add the rice and continue to simmer until cooked through, 30-45 minutes. Remove from heat.

In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and lemon juice together until combined. Take a ladle of broth from the pot and slowly pour into the egg mixture, whisking while pouring (if you add the eggs directly into the pot, the eggs will curdle). Add one more ladle of broth to the eggs and whisk to combine. Then pour the egg mixture into the large pot of soup.

Ladle into bowls and garnish with dill. Enjoy!
