Avgolemono

Greek Avgolemono

The basic recipe for Avgolemono is a healthy chicken soup thickened with eggs and seasoned with lemon juice to taste. Perfect for the cold season. We added a modern twist with our pink pepperberry-lemon thyme blend.

Soup, Pasta, or Else?

Optionally, make a delicious Avgolemono pasta sauce. You can add your favorite vegetables either in the soup or pasta sauce. Or pour the sauce over cooked or fried vegetables. A good fit is green asparagus, turnip, rutabaga, pumpkin, zucchini, and/or carrot.

Variations
  • Skip the chicken soup step and buy cooked shredded
    chicken and chicken broth instead.

  • Add 1-2 tbsp white wine and/or olive oil to the Base.

    2 tbsp cold water. Add it to the Avgolemono Base.
