After reading some reviews I almost did not try this recipe. No it is not "made from scratch" authentic Avgolemono soup(which we ARE familiar with). But it sure is VERY GOOD QUICK and EASY. I will definitely make again and again. The consistency and the amount of lemon is perfect to us. My suggestions: don't use a real cheap or instant rice (I like Riceland's Extra Long Grain) use FRESH-squeezed lemon juice 1%(or creamier) milk and add lots of fresh cracked pepper. I served with french rolls with honey-butter(recipe from this site). Great creamy quick hearty (although lacking-in-veggies) meal. For more novice cooks;add the rice and the lemon juice JUST BEFORE SERVING. I appreciate your sharing this recipe Lyndsey thank you. Dyann
This soup really is so so simple and fast. Having said that I served this to company and NO ONE could finish a small bowl of it. It isn't awful and the lemon does a nice job of stirring up your hunger but it isn't tasty enough to finish. Give it a try though you may like it more than me and mine. Just remember to have something else to serve on hand. (A nice Greek salad hummus and crackers and fresh pears drizzled with honey keeps with the theme well.)
I grew up near Detroit and most of the Coney Islands served a soup similar to this one. However I wanted to double the recipe and also make it more hearty. Since I did not have two cans of cream of chicken soup I added some chicken broth and milk then boiled a boneless chicken breast and shredded it into the mix. I garnish mine with dill and it is lovely and delicious! I've made this twice already and am ready for more!
