Lemony Egg Soup

This recipe is again from one of my favourite- Rachel Ray's Kitchen.
My daughter is very fond of soups, so I try to make different varieties of soups for her.
This soup recipe is really very simple and quick and very easy to make.
It needs just a few things which we always have at hand.
So basically it is one of those rainy day recipes.
But definately worth making on any other day too!


4 Eggs
6 cups Chicken stock/ Vegetable Stock
1 big Lemon
1 Bay Leaf
1 tsp Hot sauce
A pinch of Saffron

Take the stock in a pan and start heating it.
Add a bayleaf, rind of 1 lemon and a pinch of saffron.
Let it boil.
After it starts boiling, close the Gas and let it steep for 5 minutes.

Take the juice of 1 lemon in a bowl.
Add 2 full eggs and 2 egg yolks to it and beat well.
Add Hot Sauce to it.
Add a ladleful of the stock(from the gas) to the eggs and beat well.

Then add this to the stock on the gas.
Keep on medium heat and keep stirring for about 10 mins.
Garnish it with chopped Cilantro.
And serve hot.

To make this soup as a complete meal, you can add cooked orzo or any other kind of pasta in the end and Enjoy!
