Ingredients

    1 T butter
    2 T Olive Oil
    8 Spring onions, finely chopped
    500 g mushrooms, sliced
    10 grams dried mushrooms, soaked in tepid water for 10 minutes
    1.2 liters vegetable or chicken stock
    salt and freshly ground black pepper
    2 T freshly chopped anise
    1/2 C raw long-grain white rice
    2 eggs (whites separated from yolks)
    juice of 2 lemons

Tips

we don't like to use the egg yolks to make the sauce at the end, so I add a bit of cornstarch and an extra egg white to make it nice and thick.


Directions

Melt in medium high heat, the butter, in a large pan, add the oil, onions, anise and stir for 2 minutes. Add the dried mushrooms. Stir for 3 minutes until starting to stoften, then add the fresh mushrooms, stir in the flour and continue to cook for a further 2 minutes. Pour in the stock, stiring as it's added. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes. Add the rice a nd continue cooking until the rice is tender (approximately 15-20 minutes more).

Remove from heat and allow it to cool for five minutes. Meanwhile beat the egg whites first with a fork or a beater making a frothy mixture. Then fold in the egg yolks and continue beating while adding the lemon juice. Take some liquid from the soup and stir it in your mixture. Add some more and when the mixture has warmed enough, add it in the soup. Serve hot. "Kali Oreksi"
