This soup is a fantasy blend of three classic Greek soups— avgolemono, fasolada and tahinosoupa— to create a kind of Greek soup unicorn. It would probably offend someone somewhere, but I don’t care because it’s totally delicious and full of things I like to eat. I stole the lemon and rice from the avgolemono (the best parts!) and wanted a creaminess that wasn’t egg-based, so stole the tahini and herbs from the tahinosoupa, and lifted the beans and classic flavor base from the fasolada. And there you have it, a soup that would make a Greek grandma roll her eyes (but want a taste first).
