Lemon rice soup, also known as Avgolemono, is a traditional Greek soup made with chicken broth, rice, eggs, and lemon juice. The soup has a creamy texture, tangy flavor from the lemon, and a hint of richness from the eggs. It is typically served as a starter or as a light main course. The chicken broth is typically made with chicken bones, onion, carrot, celery, and various herbs and spices, giving it a savory flavor.
Rice is added to the broth and cooked until tender, and then beaten eggs are slowly added to the soup to create a creamy and velvety texture. The soup is finished with a generous amount of lemon juice, which gives it a bright and refreshing flavor. It can be garnished with fresh herbs, such as parsley or dill, to add a pop of color and extra flavor.
