Avgolemono soup is a traditional Greek soup that has a rich citrus flavor. It is served hot or cold, as an appetizer and as a main dish. Home cooks and chefs alike improvise portions and ingredients to create variations on this classic, Greek comfort food, so the exact calories per serving vary depending on the recipe.
Basic avgolemono soup ingredients include chicken broth, egg yolks, lemon juice and orzo pasta or rice, according to a recipe from CDKitchen.com. Variations abound, as described at Boston.com and NYTimes.com, and include the additions of diced chicken, lemon zest, whipped egg whites and minced dill.
