Lemon rice soup recipe

Facebook sucks and is messing up and won't post this so I'm putting it here.

I got this recipe somewhere on the internet a couple years ago. It was supposed to be JUST like Sero's lemon rice soup. It isn't, in my opinion, but it is really good and I can easily annihilate a whole pot on my own, and then I feel really sick and full from all the rice!

3 cups chicken broth (I used a 32-ounce box of Meijer organics broth)
2-3 ounces rice (I use the contents of a boil-in-bag of brown rice)
2 eggs
3 Tb. lemon juice (I use a bit more. I like it really lemony.)

As you can see, I'm not a recipe follower! :) I did follow it to a "T" the first time I made it, though. Now I tweak amounts and it always still works out yummy.

Bring broth to a boil. Add rice. Reduce heat and simmer 'til cooked.

In separate bowl, beat together the lemon juice and eggs.

Stirring constantly, once the rice is cooked, slowly add a cup of the hot broth to the lemon/egg mixture.

Once THAT is stirred together, slowly add that mixture to the pot of soup, still stirring constantly. Heat but do not boil. Add salt and pepper to taste.

You might get a few egg white chunks (Like the stuff in egg drop soup) but if you're careful and do it just like the recipe says, it shouldn't be more than a few. If you aren't careful and just dump the soup into the egg or the egg into the soup, it will chunk up and be kind of gross.

I've also added chunks of cooked chicken breast to this soup and that's really good too.

Anyway, it's fast, easy, cheap and really yummy!
