Avgolemeno Inspired Quinoa Soup

Updated: Oct 5


  • 4 cups homemade chicken stock or bone broth

  • 2 cups Quinoa, cooked

  • 2 large egg yolks

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice,

  • About 1 cup of shredded chicken (use the leftover from Ghee + Garlic Whole Roasted Chicken)

  • 1/8 cup chopped fresh dill (more if you are really INTO dill)

  • Salt and Freshly ground pepper


  • In a large saucepan, bring stock to a gently boil and season with salt and pepper.

  • Put 1 cup of the hot stock in blender (I often use an immersion blender)

  • Add 3/4 cup of the quinoa, the egg yolks and the lemon juice and blend until smooth.

  • Slowly stir the puree into the simmering stock along with the chicken and the remaining quinoa.

  • Simmer until thickened slightly, 10 minutes. Stir in the dill and serve.


I love this for the fact that it's something fresh and different to my taste buds. Depending on the amount of lemon used, you can tweak the flavor.

The rich egg yolks are deeply nourishing.

OTHER NOTES: Great source of nourishing broth or stock

Eggs reduce Vata (aka great in postpartum)

Eggs can be heavy though

Eggs and dairy don't mix well when digesting.

Quinoa is an excellent source of protein.

Blended (or partially blended) foods are easier on digestion.

Use this conversion chart if you only have dried dill
