A protein-packed, mineral rich meal in 15 minutes flat? Yes, please! The usual recipes call for thickeners like cornstarch or arrowroot that aren’t GAPS-friendly, and soy sauce is a no-no, so I hadn’t even attempted it. But by happy accident [read NO FOOD in the house], I recently rediscovered egg drop soup. Yay!
I actually prefer this version to the thickened ones, although now that we’ve transitioned to a paleo approach a little arrowroot powder could technically be stirred in. I hope you love this simple recipe as much as we do!
- 1 diced onion
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil or sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon coconut aminos (naturally fermented soy sauce can be substituted if desired)
- 2 quarts unsalted chicken broth
- 8 eggs, beaten
- 1-2 teaspoons salt (start with 1 and increase to taste - you may need less if you use soy sauce because it is higher in salt than coconut aminos)
- ½ teaspoon ground pepper
- ⅛ tsp fish sauce (optional)
- 2 tablespoons green onions, (optional)
- Add coconut oil/sesame oill to a medium-sized pot and warm over medium heat. Add onions and saute until soft.
- Add the chicken broth, coconut aminos, salt, pepper and fish sauce if using. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer.
- Stir in a brisk circular motion while pouring in a thin stream of whisked egg.
- Season with chives before serving if desired.
