Are you guys sick of me posting about my achey teeth? I’m finally getting to a point where I can eat some real food again (yay!) Who knew soft foods would get so boring…ahem…everyone. This soup was one of the last things I made before being able to chew more food again.
As I’ve mentioned before, I can eat the same chicken soup all of the time, but Bill gets sick of it easily, so I try to change things up a bit to keep him happy through this whole braces process. Bill and I both love rice in soup, so I decided to try out a recipe for Greek Chicken and Lemon soup with rice, known as Avgolemono. This soup isn’t quite Avgolemono, because I didn’t add egg yolks to it (I’m sensitive to eggs), and I used our Super Gyro spice blend instead of fresh dill.
The lemon added a bright flavor to the soup, but it wasn’t over powering. We really enjoyed this recipe, and it was a nice change to our classic chicken soup meal that we often make. This recipe would be lovely with fresh dill, but I had to try it out with our Greek (gyro) spice blend! (below)
