Greek sauces and dressings
The Avgolemono (egg and lemon sauce)
The Avgolemono is made with eggs, lemon and broth from whatever we have cooked that day. We can use broth from chicken, meat or fish.
The amount of broth you use depends on whether we are making a soup or we are using it as a sauce. If you want the sauce to be thick dissolve 1 tablespoon of cornflour to the beaten eggs.
