      Made this soup today to fortify me during an afternoon of cooking :). I used home made chicken broth and leftover brown rice (it had a few peppers in it but waste not want not and even quicker :) ). I love it ! Very tasty, love the tang of the lemon in there and just a nice rainy day lunch. Thanks so much for posting, JackieOhNo! Made during ZWT#9 for my team, Tasty Testers :)

      What a nice soup. I skipped step one as I was making fresh chicken broth and had made rice, so I was able to skip to the next step. I used 3 cups broth and a cup of cooked rice, and just one egg yolk. This was the perfect amount for us - we like our soup!

      I have never tried Avgolemono before and I was sold on an easy way to make it. It was fantastic. So easy and tasty. Thank you!
