      Used about 1/3 lemon, wish recipe had recommended amount. I left out the egg, but it was still pretty good. I added a little cider vinegar after I tasted it. Not bad, really does take slow addition of soup to cream. I used Romain and red leaf lettuce. A good way to use up lettuce, and refreshing.

      Very nice! I halved the recipe (except the garlic...) and found a really small egg yolk in my batch of small eggs. I used a head of Boston lettuce, next time I'd find a slightly larger head, but Boston lettuce seems to work well with this. The grocery was without parsley, so the soup went without. Made for Veggie Swap 12/10.

      Everybody enjoyed this except me! I thought it was ok but could be better. I used romaine & think a spring lettuce/something soft would be much better. It was tasty; kind of like a leafy avgolemono. I wonder if using chicken broth instead of water might be good. Made for 2/10 Veggie Swap! Thanks, LM!
