Comfort in a Bowl
November 14, 2016
In the mood to cook? I think this tart soup might be the perfect dish for this particular moment in time. If anything can comfort you, this is it.
Shopping list: 6 cups chicken stock, 1/3 cup rice, 1 lemon.
Staples: 4 eggs, salt.
Bring about six cups of good rich chicken stock to a boil. Add a third of a cup of raw rice, lower the heat to a simmer, and cook for 20 minutes..
Meanwhile, grate the rind from one lemon into a bowl. Squeeze the naked lemon, and add the juice to the rind.
Separate four eggs, dropping the yolks into the lemon juice. (Save the whites for another use.) Add a pinch of salt and beat the yolks into the lemon juice and rind.
When the rice is tender, whisk about half a cup of the hot stock into the yolks, then slowly pour the yolks into the soup, stirring constantly. Cook gently for about five minutes, or until the soup is slightly thickened. Pour into bowls and eat slowly.

And it’s got a golem in the name!
is there an over the counter chicken stock you prefer? nothing compares to home made of course, but….who has the time.
I’m sorry to say that the supermarket brands I’ve found are all pretty terrible. But I’ve found this Spanish brand which is actually acceptable (and sadly, expensive).
I’ll need a lot more than soup to comfort me at this time.
I’m so uncomfortable now after the election that nothing I eat is going to help.
I never believed that our new President really meant what he said.
Now I’m learning that his policies and appointments seem to be worse than
his pre-election speeches.
I’m usually a Republican voter but this time I had to cross the line and vote for
a women, even though I did not like her.
The question is where will we all be taken with Republicans dominating everything?
Worse? Really? How can they be worse? This is worrying.
What rice would one use, basmati, jasmine, or arborio?
