Lemon Rice Soup
2 tbsp. butter
3 medium green onions, minced
6 cups chicken broth
2/3 cup long grain white rice
4 large eggs
Juice of 1 lemon
1/8 tsp. white pepper
In a large saucepan, melt the butter on medium heat. Add the green onions and cook for 3 minutes, stirring frequently until the onions are tender.
Stir in the chicken broth and rice. Bring to boiling on medium high heat. Reduce to low heat. Cover and simmer for 25 minutes. Rice should be tender.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs with a wire whisk. Add the lemon juice and 1/2 cup of the broth mixture.
Gradually add the lemon juice mixture to the broth mixture, stirring constantly. Cook on low heat for 3 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken, stirring constantly. Do not boil. Boiling will cause the soup to curdle and be very lumpy. Stir in the white pepper.
