HI!!! *waving* How are you?!

I’m doing GREAT! Thank you for asking! In fact, I’m doing better than great! Today is a BIG DAY for us. HUGE!

Today we’re finally going to Christen our little Aleksandra.
I say finally because baby-girl is 2-years old. In a normal household, this would have been done within the first 6 months of her life. In our household?!
Yah… we drag.

At this very moment I’m probably losing it. No, really. I’m most likely screaming, running around like a maniac, trying to get everyone ready before the Church Bells ring.
Everything is washed, ironed (the worst chore, ever!), and ready for them to just slip it on. Fingers crossed, no one will ask to eat before we head out.

In other news, looks like Savory Sundays has turned into Crock Pot Sundays! Do you mind? Of course not.
Do you “like” how I always answer for you? 🙂

This right here is my Mom’s favorite soup. No matter where we go, no matter what day it is, she will either pick up a bowl at a nearby restaurant or make it at home.

WHAT IS LEMON RICE SOUP

Lemon Rice Soup is a classic lemon soup made with fresh ingredients including, rice, lemons, and eggs.

HOW DO YOU MAKE LEMON RICE SOUP IN THE CROCK POT

  1. Place vegetable broth and rice in the crock pot to cook for 3 hours on high.
  2. Ladle 1 cup of the soup into an egg-yolk mixture prepared with egg yolks and lemon juice; whisk vigorously until well combined.
  3. Whisk the egg-yolk mixture into the crock pot; close and continue to cook for 10 minutes.
  4. Stir in the heavy cream or milk; season to taste
  5. Serve.

RECIPE NOTES

The egg yolk mixture needs to be whisked into the soup very well or you will end up with scrambled eggs, instead.

Though it doesn’t take that long to make this lemon rice soup on the stove-top, the difference is that you can set this in the crock pot hours before dinner and it will be warm and ready just as soon as dinner-time arrives.

Also?? I like my Lemon Rice Soup very lemony. Like almost to the point where you make that lemony face. The rest of the Fam doesn’t like it that way. Waaaah!

SO! If you are like me, make sure to place a bunch of lemon slices in the crock pot together with the soup. But, if you are anything like my crew back here, skip that part.

Now, because I have to run and get my posse to Church, I am gonna let you go and tomorrow I will come back to report on how everything went. Maybe I’ll have some pictures for you, too! YAY!

God Bless!

ENJOY!

  1. I made this tonight. It was too lemony for us. I unfortunately had to throw it out as it was inedible.

  2. I’m not sure what happened but the rice expanded to fill the whole pot! I chose to cook on low for six hours. By hour four. the whole thing was mush. It tasted okay, and I think it would have been great as a soup.

      Hi Barbara! Oh no! It sounds like you figured out how to make risotto in a crock pot! ๐Ÿ˜‰ My apologies, please. I don’t know exactly what could have happened but how big is your crock pot? I’m not certain, but this may have happened because the crock pot was too small. My mistake for not indicating that this should be done in a crock pot that’s at least 6.5 qt.

  3. I really want to try this soup accept I’m a lacto-vegetarian – so no eggs. Is there something I can substitute for the egg yolks or should I just leave it out?

  4. I love lemon but husband not so much, so decided to only put 3 lemon slices in instead of 5-6. The resulting soup is SO BITTER! I don’t know if it is because of the lemon rind/white part that simmered in the broth? I am trying to salvage the pot, but it is inedible at this point! I would try making again but completely omit the lemon slices from it to see if it is any different. I am hesitant though, as I don’t like wasting food!

      Oh NO ๐Ÿ™ I’m so sorry it didn’t turn out! I have always left the lemon slices in there.
      You are in fact the second reader to have the same comment, so I might have to go ahead and adjust the recipe. I have always had it this way and never found it to be too bitter.
      At this point, you can add a teaspoon of sugar to offset bitterness and then maybe extra bit of salt and seasonings to offset the sugar. I hope this helps! Again, I’m really sorry the recipe didn’t work out. ๐Ÿ™

      1. I tried to add some more cream, sugar and salt and it helped a bit, but was still a bit too bitter to enjoy. The initial flavor when it hits your mouth is great, its just a very, very bitter aftertaste! I’m going to try again and omit the slices…I will let you know how it turns out!

    2. I’m not sure, but bitterness could be the result of lemons that aren’t fresh enough, or, of rice that wasn’t thoroughly rinsed. Always taste the fresh squeezed lemon juice before adding! Sometimes I finish a recipe only to taste that my lemons ruined it. ๐Ÿ™ I’m going to try this recipe this week. I’ll let you know how it turns out!

  5. This is always a huge hit in our household. If you don’t like lemon, back away, this is not for you. If you Love lemon, and you love a rice soup…You’ve hit Gold!!

      Hi!
      Thanks for bringing that to my attention! The nutrition label isn’t reading the low sodium vegetable broth as “low sodium” – I’ve updated the nutrition facts accordingly.

  6. Joanne Kanfer

    To stop the bitterness that people talked about I put carrots in the soup. Common trick in making italian sauce

  7. vernice rizzuto

    I didn’t have veg broth so I used low sodium chicken broth didn’t have thyme sprigs so I used ground thyme dont have a lemon so going to use Italian lemon juice also I added salt to crock because cooked salt is he salt is much healthier than added salt at 9pm it will be 3 hours on high I chose this recipe because of what I have in the cupboard and lemons are extremely good for you
