This soup was very good, and even better than our local diner. I followed some other suggestions and used only a little over 1/8 of a cup of fresh lemon juice, and I also wisked the egg and lemon juice together until frothy before adding it slowly to the rice and broth. This created that creamy texture I love. We then continued to simmer until dinner was ready, about 10 minutes, and the soup was great. Thank you so much, it was so easy!

I love lemon but there was a bit too much in this for me (even with 1/4 cup).

This was so delicious! Next time, I would use less lemon (like a tad more than 1/8 c) and boil after I added the egg to thicken the soup. But we really enjoyed it on a cold winter day!
