This keto Avgolemeno soup is loaded with chunks of chicken, tasty spaghetti squash and a lemon broth thickened with egg! This low carb avgolemeno is compliant with Whole30, Paleo, and Squeaky Clean Keto eating plans.
I originally tested this keto Avgolemeno Soup recipe without even trying the traditional version (although I have since, and it definitely stands up I’m happy to say!)
I had heard about Avgolemeno, a traditional Greek chicken soup made with lemon and eggs whisked into it, and always wanted to try it – if only because the name is cool. It’s typically made with rice or orzo, but I thought I’d put a low carb twist on it by serving it with spaghetti squash instead.
It was perfect! The light, lemony broth was so comforting, and the squash added a subtle sweetness to this low carb Avgolemono Soup that is downright addicting!
As a bonus, for those of you doing the Whole30, this keto avgolemeno soup is totally legal – although I did grate some fresh parmesan into mine which made it extra yummy, though not Whole 30 compliant.
I definitely recommend putting this keto Avgolemeno on your list of soups to try ASAP. It’s a nice departure from the typical chicken soup, with a light and refreshing flavor that is unique and still comforting.
I started with chicken quarters and made my own chicken broth with the bones, but in case you don’t have time, I’m going to write the recipe using quantities for cooked chicken and prepared broth.
That way even if you start with a rotisserie chicken and some decent quality store bought broth, you’ll be that much closer to eating this super easy, and totally satisfying soup on your next rainy (or snowy) day!Print
