Karl’s Avgolemono Soup II (Greek Egg and Lemon Soup)

Jan’s friend needed a soft soup after her oral surgery and Jan’s family is descending upon us. Blended soups are the order of the day. In addition to Ezo Gelin and Maafe, I will be making another soup I have made before, Avgolemono.

Karl’s Avgolemono Soup, Greek Egg and Meyer Lemon Soup

Avgolemono soup is a Greek soup that may have its origin  in Iberia brought by Sephardic Jews  after they were expelled from Spain in 1492.  In its simplest form it has only four ingredients: chicken stock, some kind of starch (usually rice or orzo), a souring agent (usually lemon juice, but pomegranate and sour orange juice may also be used) and eggs. While the simple soup may be nice, it would not make a complete meal because it lacks vegtables.
