    Kumquat the Cat's friend's Note:

    Posted this because of a to-die-for soup I recently made (see Sage's Soupa Avgolemono), converted into a stew. A classic Greek dish from a vegetarian "minute meals" cookbook. Delicious, easy and fast. Serve with a simple tomato and feta salad. Use a top-quality broth if you can. As written it turns out like a soupy-ish stew. P.S. I like to cook the stew long enough so the eggs coagulate, so I would personally simmer for about 5 minutes after adding eggs.

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Combine vegetable broth, chickpeas with liquid, rice and onions in large saucepan. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat.
    2. 2
      Stir in the carrots and reduce the heat so that the liquid boils gently. Cover and cook until the rice is tender but slightly firm to the bite, about 10-15 minutes.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, beat the eggs in a small bowl, add lemon juice and stir to combine.
    4. 4
      Ladle 1/2 cup of the hot liquid from the stew into the eggs and stir. Still stirring, slowly pour the egg-lemon broth mixture into the stew. Reduce heat to low.
    5. 5
      Add the spinach and stir until wilted. Serve immediately.

      I really liked this recipe. Came together quickly and was tasty. I think adding some feta directly to the soup added the extra flavor I was looking for. Thanks for sharing!

      This soup/stew was quite tasty! I will admit that I made a few minor adjustments. I had some leftover cooked veal which I browned, then I sauteed the onions, celery and carrot in the rendered fat before adding the stock, chick peas, some lemon zest and a little Greek oregano. I also added already-cooked rice with the spinach, just long enough to reheat. All in all, this was a fine recipe, and one I'd be happy to make again, with or without the addition of meat! Thank you.
