I’ll give you the simple recipe of the Easter Soup – Mayiritsa, but if you want more details you should go to: 


a young lamb Liver


juice of one Lemon

5 finely chopped Chives

1/2 cup Butter

1/2 bunch chopped Dill


6 tablespoons Rice

Egg and Lemon Sauce


Wash liver. Bring to a boil 7 cups water and put in the liver. As it begins to boil, remove scum which forms on top, add salt and simmer for 30 minutes. Drain the liver and cut into very small pieces.

Sauté chives in the butter, in a saucepan, until soft. Add chopped liver, dill, and pepper. Cook, stirring for a few minutes. Add the stock and simmer for 25 minutes. 20 minutes before serving time add rice. Remove from heat and prepare egg and lemon sauce. Add to soup, stir well and serve very hot.

I have to say I hate this soup, but my husband and daughter love it!! So like every food some will like it and some won’t!



  1. I have no idea what that is, but Happy Easter!! :>
