Avgolemono Soup

Avgolemono is a rice and chicken soup thickened with egg and lemon. It is aptly named from the Greek words for egg ‘avgo’ and lemon ‘lemoni’. This is a traditional Easter soup that is eaten to break the 40 day fast, typically after midnight mass, but it is also made throughout the year for its soothing and nourishing qualities, making it an ideal food for convalescents.
