Marjoram is used more than any other aromatic herb in the area of Northwestern Italy where I was born: Liguria. In this simple and quick soup called «Minestrina di maggiorana fresca», marjoram does steal the show.
|2 cups||chicken broth||500 mL|
|2 cups||water||500 mL|
|3/4 cup||arborio rice||130 g|
|1/4 cup||marjoram, fresh, minced||28 g|
|4 tbsp||Parmesan cheese, grated||12 g|
|2||eggs size large|
|ground pepper to taste [optional]|
- Pour the broth and water into a saucepan, then bring it to a boil. Stir in the rice and cook until al dente, about 15 min.
- Meanwhile, mince the marjoram, then add it to a small bowl. Grate the Parmesan, then add it to the bowl. Beat the egg(s) with the marjoram and Parmesan. Season with salt and pepper.
- Pour the egg mixture into the broth, then remove the saucepan from the heat, wait 30 seconds, then stir gently once or twice using a fork to scramble the egg(s). Serve.
