Avgolemono, is a creamy lemon Greek soup.

Its just doesn't sit well to have a bowl of hot Greek Lemon Soup with Chicken Meatballs in summer, Gazpacho is okay but hot soup broth???

Surprisingly, the start of summer in Perth had been mild. I could still feel the chill in the morning air as the sun was just about to rise.

It was a magical moment at this time of day... Sun rises at 5 am, the neighbourhood was still in slumberland, total quietness apart from the birds singing their morning songs.

Before the weather gets too hot, plus my 'Lazy' mode indicator was blinking... one pot meal would be the perfect solution.
Flipping pages of my One pot Meal Wonders cookbook, I found this recipe. Looks do-able.
And I am certainly intrigue by the egg-lemon and cream combination in a pot.

The challenge is to have a smooth thick soup, not a curdle Greek soup!!! As we all know that lemon and dairy, can spell 'Disaster' :D

 This Greek Lemon Soup turned out to be good with no disaster at all!
One thing that I had to quickly 'fixed' was the chicken mince.
Once thawed, unfortunately, this packet of mince chicken had a lot of water than it should, that makes the mince, soft and 'mushy' unable to hold its ball-shape well. Boo-hoo :(.

With 2 slices of bread, processed to crumbs, added to the mince, season with salt and pepper. Pre-cook before adding  to soup.

Even though, a bowl of the soup is a complete meal with carbo, protein and veg all in one, but I still serve them with bread.
We love our carb ;P


  1. Lemon sounds and looks fascinating and delicious.

  2. Yum, Yum, YUM! This is such a great sounding recipe. I love chicken lemon soup, but the meatballs are genius. Since it always seems to be summer here in Southern California, I have resigned to eating hot soup all year round. - Danielle

    1. LOL... I would too if I live in Southern California :D
