a yummy scrumptious delicious greek lemon egg soup!!
ooooo so divine!! this is FANTASTIC!!!
this was so good i wanted to crawl into the bowl and lick the bottom!
Recipe makes 1 Serving and equals
2 cups vegetables
1 unrestricted packet
1 daily egg
1 tsp oil or butter
1 oz daily allotment of milk
What I used:
i'm sure you could substitute the IP chicken soup with no issues
with a microplane, zest 1 lemon and juice 1 lemon
and add to a small bowl or container, add 1 TBSP hot water, to warm the mixture
next step is OPTIONAL and NOT IP complaint
i added 1/2 tsp cornstarch to help thicken (you could also use xantham gum here) thanks frawniemae
this adds 5 calories and 1 gram carb
DO NOT ADD THIS if your coach does not allow it
you can continue WITHOUT this, only it just won't be quite as thick
in another bowl, whisk your egg very well until frothy
then add your whisked egg into your lemon juice
grate your cauliflower and place into a small bowl with 1 tbsp water
and cover with a wet paper towel
and microwave for 3 minutes
in the meantime, heat 1 cup water until boiling
add your soup mixture and mix well with a whisk
now, this is where you need to be careful
add 1 spoonful of your hot soup into your eggs
and mix well, then add another spoonful, and mix again
this will "temper" your eggs, and keep them from cooking in the bowl
then slowly add the rest of the soup into the egg mixture mixing well
add your mixture into a small pot
next, remove your cooked cauliflower from the microwave
and add it to your soup in the pot
over low - medium heat, slowly heat until it thickens a bit
this only takes about 1 minute!!
add to your bowl...and top with some chives!!
i like to add 1 tsp of a daily fat....to give it a richer taste
i use 1/2 tsp butter, but then i am not 100%
so you can use olive oil, or coconut oil
i also add my daily allotment of milk for extra creaminess
but this is not necessary
the soup tastes GREAT either way!
i like to add a little pepper to mine!!
see how thick and creamy it is!!
looks like rice but it isn't!!
