Recipe by Shawn C

This was given to me by the local Greek restaurant owner in my town. It is her own personal way of creating this light but filling soup.

I made this today and with a few minor adjustments. I added another egg and lemon plus the zest from all 3 lemons. Needed additional 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 2 freshly grated garlic cloves. Next time I will add some Greek oregano for added depth.
