It's called Avgolemono but since I don't even know how to pronounce that I call it Greek Lemon Soup. It's tangy and silky and I know those are strange adjectives for soup but it's unexpected and absolutely delicious. And the best part is that it only takes four ingredients to make: orzo, chicken broth, eggs and a lemon. Cheap, quick, and healthy... the trifecta of everything I want my everyday meals to be.
It's the perfect lunch when we're traveling in the RV because if we get fresh eggs from a farm, all the ingredients are shelf stable and they don't have to be refrigerated. Grocery store eggs must be refrigerated but farm fresh eggs that haven't been washed have a protective bloom around them and they can sit on the counter-top at room temperature until you're ready to use them.
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1/2 cup orzo
- 3 eggs
- 1 lemon
