Lemony Egg Soup with Peas

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4 as a first course

Adding lemon and egg to broth—like in the Greek soup avgolemono—makes it velvety. Peas lend a sweet, springy flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp. finely chopped shallot
  • 1 quart lower-salt chicken broth
  • 3 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
  • 2 large eggs
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 Tbs. finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
  • 2 cups thawed frozen peas

Preparation

  • In a 3-quart saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the shallot and cook, stirring, until tender, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken broth and lemon juice; bring to a gentle simmer. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Reduce the heat to medium low, and slowly whisk in the eggs. Add the Parmigiano, season to taste with salt and pepper, and divide among 4 soup bowls. Divide the peas among the bowls and serve.
