Easy Egg Drop Soup ~ GF, DF, Low-Carb

Since entering the low-carb/keto world there is one recipe I have seen floating around that peaked my interest but sounded totally strange to me all at the same time.

Egg Drop Soup.

It just sounds weird, doesn’t it?! I was picturing a bunch of whole eggs just floating around in a soup bowl, much like my sad attempts at making poached eggs.  Or this…Egg Drop SoupIt wasn’t until I actually looked into it and then made it for myself that I realized how awesome it is, plus it’s a fun new way to eat eggs.  It’s also really quick to make – 15 minutes tops!

This is a traditional Chinese dish and is usually made with 3 ingredients chicken stock, eggs and green onions.  It has since been adapted a number of ways.  Ingredients like ginger, soy sauce and sesame oil are sometimes added, as well as shiitake mushrooms or greens.

After playing around with some ingredients I think I came up with a pretty simple but flavourful combo.Easy Egg Drop Soup ~ www.thehappyhealthfreak.com ~ #keto #lowcarb #glutenfree
