Avgolemono is a traditional Greek soup known for its creamy and tangy flavor. It is made with a combination of eggs, lemon juice, and chicken broth, resulting in a velvety texture and a refreshing taste. Here's a recipe to help you create an amazing Avgolemono soup:


  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup Arborio rice or white rice
  • 3 large eggs
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh dill for garnish (optional)


  1. In a large pot, bring the chicken broth to a boil. Add the rice and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook the rice until it is tender, according to the package instructions.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs until they are well beaten. Gradually whisk in the lemon juice until the mixture is smooth and well combined.
  3. Take a ladleful of the hot chicken broth from the pot and slowly pour it into the egg-lemon mixture, whisking continuously. This will temper the eggs and prevent them from curdling.
  4. Gradually pour the egg-lemon mixture back into the pot of simmering chicken broth, whisking continuously. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes, stirring gently, until the soup thickens slightly.
  5. Season the Avgolemono soup with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the amount of lemon juice according to your preference for tartness.
  6. Remove the soup from heat and ladle it into serving bowls. Garnish with chopped fresh dill, if desired.
  7. Serve the Avgolemono soup hot and enjoy its creamy texture and bright lemon flavor.
