Egg Drop Soup – A Low Carb Soup

This Egg Drop Soup is another quick, easy, and inexpensive meal from my book, Crazy Busy Keto!

Sharing this because it’s perfect for cold winter months or when you’re fighting a cold or flu bug. You can easily use just four basic ingredients: broth, egg, sesame oil, and salt.

It’s soothing, satisfying, and completely healthy! 

Egg Drop Soup
Makes 1 serving

We call this comfort food at my house because it’s perfect for those times when your tummy feels a little off.  It’s also perfect when you need some great protein that’s fast, inexpensive, and comes with minimal clean-up.  While I’ve provided directions for a stovetop, you can make this recipe using a microwave at full power, which makes it an option for those times when you don’t have a full kitchen, but you do have a microwave. Just be sure to add the egg a little at a time and microwave in short bursts to keep the broth hot in between adding the egg.

2 cups chicken broth
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tablespoon chopped green onion or ¼ teaspoon minced dried onion
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon sesame oil
¼ teaspoon coconut aminos (optional)
Dash salt
Dash pepper

Bring the broth to a boil on medium high heat in a 1 ½ quart saucepan.  Add the onion and garlic powder. As the broth boils, slowly pour in the beaten eggs, adding just a bit at a time and stirring as the eggs are added.  When all of the egg has been added and is cooked, remove from heat.  Pour into a serving bowl.  Top with the sesame oil, coconut aminos, salt, and pepper.  Serve immediately. 

Crazy Busy Ingredient Note:  When using prepared broth, look for brands that have few ingredients.  You want to avoid potato starch, maltodextrin, sugary, corn syrup, or other added carbs.
