The egg yolks are mixed with sour cream and to this mayonnaise, add the dressing little by little from the hot soup, stirring constantly until we bring it to a temperature close to the soup.

At this point, add the sour cream dressing to the rest of the soup in the pot and, if necessary, season with salt. Stir to mix, turn off the heat and sprinkle with finely chopped larch.
