Paleo Greek Egg-Lemon Soup (Avgolemono)

December 17, 2014 by Kari Karch

Two words: Cauliflower Rice… That’s the secret substitute that I used to make one of my favorite soups! I love the lemony flavor and wanted to turn this soup into a healthier version of the original. Try this extremely simple soup tonight and I promise, you won’t miss the starch! HAPPY EATING!


preparation time

cook time




6 cup chicken stock

1 tablespoons reduced sodium chicken base

0.5 head of cauliflower grated into 'rice'

2 eggs

1 lemon juiced

1 tablespoons cornstarch



In a medium stock pot, heat the chicken stock over medium high heat and add the cauliflower rice. Cook for 5 minutes. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Temper the mixture by taking one ladle of the hot stock and whisking into the egg mixture. Do this a couple times to bring the egg mixture up to temperature. Whisk the egg mixture into the stock pot. Make a cornstarch slurry using the 1 tablespoon of cornstarch combined with 1 tablespoon of the soup. Whisk into soup and turn up to high heat. The soup should thicken in a couple minutes. Adjust seasonings. Garnish with dill and serve.
