Soup with the Simons: Lemon Egg Drop

By | January 10, 2012

Interested in trying a soup like none you’ve had before?

This is your man.

I usually go for thick vegetable soups. You know, the ones with nice fat pieces of sweet potato or squash that I can chomp down on. This soup is about as different from that as they come, but I like it anyway.

Lemon egg drop soup relies on fresh ingredients: Freshly squeezed lemon juice and minced fresh mint leaves (the mint may be “just” a garnish, but it’s an important player). Checking fresh herbs in Israel is relatively simple, and I love a good reason to do it.

Although the fresh ingredients are where this soup is at, the base comes from something we all know and love: leftovers! You can use leftover cooked rice or barely, any type lying around waiting to be used.

This light, lemony soup is great for a change of pace. Everyone and her mother makes chicken soup. But you can bring lemon egg drop soup to the table instead.
