In a bowl combine mince, egg white, grated onion, rice, parsley, dill and/or mint, 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt and pepper. Knead the mixture for a few minutes and then form meatballs, the size of a walnut and roll them into the flour to coat them all around. Put them aside.
In a pan boil together stock, butter (or olive oil), salt and pepper to taste. Carefully add meatballs, lower the heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.
Meanwhile in another bowl beat the egg and egg yolk . Dilute the cornflour into the lemon juice and add it to the eggs. Pour ladlefuls of the hot soup to the egg mixture, just to make it warm and then pour it to the soup. Don't stir, just shake the pan gently. When the soup starts boiling it's ready. Remove from stove, adjust taste and serve.
A green salad and some feta cheese will complement your soup nicely!
