- eggs, separated
- lemon juice
1Beat the egg yolks and lemon juice. (Save egg-whites for another dish)
Remove some of the broth from whatever you're finished cooking.This sauce is added in the last 5 minutes. (Boiling chicken, meatballs, zucchini) and gradually add it to the beaten egg yolks. You want to increase the temperature without ending up with omelette!
2Add the beaten egg mixture back to the pot, do not stir the soup, simply gently shake the pot to distribute the mix. Do not let it boil. It will start to thicken and will be ready in five minutes.
3You can add more lemon, salt/pepper now if you want.
