This simple Whole30 and Keto Egg Drop Soup is made with a few simple ingredients and only takes 10 minutes to make.
- Cooking Spray or Oil
- 1 inch Ginger - peeled and sliced*
- 2 cloves Garlic - smashed*
- 1 Green Onion Sliced - separate the white and green parts
- 1 cup shredded Cabbage, Carrots, or sliced Mushrooms - Optional
- 4 cup Broth - Chicken or Vegetable*
- 1 tablespoon Coconut Aminos
- 1/2 teaspoon Fish Sauce
- 1 teaspoon Sesame Seed Oil + Extra for drizzling over the finished soup
- 1/2 tablespoon Tapioca Starch
- 2 tablespoons Water
- 4 large Eggs
- Salt and Pepper - to taste
- Heat a stockpot over medium heat. Add enough oil to lightly coat the pan's bottom and add the garlic, ginger, and white parts of the green onions. Sautee for 1 minute to soften.
- Next, add the shredded cabbage and carrots and stir to coat in the oil - cook for another minute.
- Add the broth, coconut aminos, fish sauce, and sesame seed oil to the pan, stir to remove veggies from the bottom of the pan, and heat until lightly boiling.
- In a bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the eggs. Make sure the white and yolk are well combined.
- In another small bowl, mix the tapioca starch with water and stir until dissolved. Stir the tapioca slurry into the broth.
- Once the liquid returns to a low boil, slowly stir in the egg yolks. This helps create little ribbons of eggs in the soup.
- Once all the eggs are incorporated, taste the soup and add salt and pepper as needed.
- Soup the finished soup into a bowl and serve with the tops of the green onions and a drizzle with extra sesame seed oil.
You can substitute 1 teaspoon of dried garlic and ginger for the fresh.
Slowly drizzle in the eggs. Adding the eggs too quickly will create large clumps. I recommend using a cup or bowl with a spout for easy pouring.
Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
Vegetarian Egg Drop Soup - omit the fish sauce and use vegetable stock.
Bone Broth also works great for this recipe!
