My husband left for a field exercise so I’m cooking for just me for the next few weeks. The weather has been off and on between cold and warm, so I’m in the mood for something warming but still light. I also didn’t want to go to the store so I decided to use what we had in the house. Typically you use green onion, but we only had celery, so I used that instead. We always keep organic broth and organic eggs on hand, so I figured why not make egg drop soup! Last time I made it I feel like I finally mastered it, so making it again was amazing!! The awesome thing about this soup is that it is super simple, and made from staples that are kept in many households.
Without further ado, let’s get into how it was made!
- Two 8 oz boxes of organic chicken bone broth
- Two stalks of celery, finely chopped
- Two large organic eggs
- Sea salt, pepper
- Pour the broth into a medium sized sauce pan on medium to high heat
- Rinse and chop the celery
- Bring the soup to a rolling boil
- Crack one egg & drop it in the soup a little at a time
- I dropped the yolk in whole, which made basically a poached egg yolk
- The first one made a big splash so if you do drop it be careful!
- After the first yolk goes in, wait until the soup gets back to a rolling boil prior to dropping another yolk in
Now I know technically you’re not supposed to have a whole yolk in egg drop soup. I was in a bit of a hurry and didn’t want to poke holes in the yolk. Since I really like poached eggs, I didn’t mind having the whole yolk! Either way, it was delicious and not difficult to make at all! It was the perfect meal for right now since it’s warm but still light. I thought about defrosting some of the leftover chili we had in the freezer but I wanted something lighter. This soup hit the spot. I’ll admit I’m also a bit bummed hubby will be gone for four weeks, so I really wasn’t up to cooking anything elaborate. Making a fairly large batch of this soup will make a couple of meals for me so I won’t have to cook anything else for a few days.
Hopefully you found this helpful. As always, thanks for stopping by!
