Easter Soup

This is a traditional soup from Italy. It uses many of the ingredients which would have been freely available at this time of year in that country and combines them into a great tasting soup.For US to UK equivalents see this rough guide

Recipe Ingredients:

  • Lamb - 1/2 kg
  • Flour - 1 tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Butter - 3 tbsp
  • Parsley - 1 tbsp
  • Onions - 1 tbsp
  • Rice
  • Lemon Juice - 2 tbsp
  • Corn Flour - 2 tbsp
  • Egg Yokes - 3


Please read all the recipe as there are two options. Take the lamb and place in a pan. Add Fresh Water, Some Salt And 1 Small Spoonful of flour and boil Slowly For 30-40 Mins. Add the chopped Herbs , Stirring Them From Time To Time. Some people will now strain the soup having used the lamb as a "stock". If this is the case, then strain the Broth Into Another Casserole/soup dish/pot, add Some Rice (1 Spoonful Per Person), And Boil them for another 30-45 minutes. Alternatively if you have minced the lamb then DON'T strain the soup and merely add any other ingredients. Then, Let them Half-Cool, Prepare And Add The Egg & Lemon Sauce, Stir Well And Serve.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
