Also known as avgolemono, this soup has been a longtime favorite of mine. I’ve made several version of this Greek soup and this recipe stands up with the best of them.
No matter what recipe I’ve used, this soup is remarkably simple, only 5 ingredients plus salt and pepper (I refuse to count a garnish as a legit ingredient, so the dill from this recipe is not included in my calculation). And it always tastes delicious. It is both super comforting and incredibly light at the same time. The lemon is refreshing and makes you think of the springtime. I particularly enjoy this soup in the deepest, darkest part of the winter (the short hours of sunlight in January, ugh).
This recipe includes chicken breast which helps fill out the soup. I personally enjoy it even without the additional meat, but the Bear needs something heartier so this recipe actually works better for us than the other versions I’ve made in the past.
I know I often tell you try give a recipe a try. But seriously, give this recipe a try. Try it during the next snowstorm, when you don’t feel like the spring will ever come and you are overwhelmed by the grey and gloom. It will make your heart happy. Seriously.
