Greek Style Egg Lemon Soup with Chicken and Greens

Greek Style Egg Lemon Soup with Chicken and Greens

AusEggsSoupRecipe 2. Square crop


1 and 1/2 cup risoni pasta

3 litres chicken stock (homemade or store-bought)

4 eggs

2 small lemons

2 bay leaves

500g chicken thighs

2 cups chopped silverbeet

olive oil



  1. Place stock in a pot and bring to boil. Add risoni and cook for 5-6 minutes.
  2. Beat eggs together in a separate bowl. Add the lemon juice from the two small lemons and whisk together. Set aside.
  3. Reduce heat until stock stops boiling. Take a half cup measure of stock, careful not to scoop any risoni, and pour into egg mixture, whisking to combine. The mixture should remain smooth without any scrambled pieces of eggs.
  4. Add another ½ cup of stock to the eggs and whisk, repeating 3-4 times.
  5. Then pour egg mixture back into pot with risoni and stir. Simmer for 5 or so minutes, being careful to not boil it.
  6. Add silverbeet. Simmer for 10-15 minutes until soup thickens stirring occasionally. Remove bay leaves.
  7. In the meantime, place a drizzle of olive oil and chicken thighs into a pan and cook until golden brown, turning as needed. Set aside and slice.
  8. Once soup is thickened, serve and place some shredded chicken on top of each bowl with a generous amount of chopped parsley. Enjoy!
