Avgolemeno Recipe

Ingredients for Avgolemeno Recipe

  • 1/2 cup uncooked rice or orzo
  • 7-8 cup stock
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • 2-3 eggs
  • salt and pepper to taste

Directions for Avgolemeno Recipe

Prepare a stock by boiling slowly lean lamb, meat bones, or chicken with enough water to cover. Strain stock when meat is done. 1/2 hour before serving, boil stock and add rice or orzo. When orzo is done, reduce heat
to simmer. In a bowl, beat eggs with 2 Tbsp. water and the lemon juice. Spoon broth into egg mixture STIRRING CONSTANTLY to prevent curdling. After adding about 5 Tbsp. broth to eggs, add eggs to the broth on the stove STIRRING CONSTANTLY. Remove from heat. It should be slightly thick. Serve immediately. I like this pretty “lemony”, so I sometimes add more lemon.


1 head leaf lettuce, torn in pieces
tomatoes, cut in wedges
cucumber, cubed
Calamata olives
chunks of good feta cheese

1 small clove of garlic
red wine vinegar
olive oil
Mash the garlic with a mortar and pestle, add herbs and grind. Rinse sides with vinegar and whisk in oil.(If you don’t have a mortar and pestle, mince garlic very finely and rub herbs between your hands.)

Arrange salad on plates and dress.
