Egg Drop Soup magic discovery
This recipe has made it on our Top 10 Best Low Carb & Keto Recipes of 2018, and was first discovered by my daughter, who went to a friend for a play date. Came home and all she could talk about was the best soup ever she had.
After a few phone calls with my friend, who told me it was a simple Bone Broth, which my daughter does not like in our house, my friends mentioned adding an egg into it.
An egg? In the bone broth?
Bone Broth Egg Drop Soup
And that’s, where the magic happened. This simple egg inside a bone broth made it unforgettable and LOVED forever.
This really is a few seconds Keto Egg Drop Soup.
And all that was just 1 additional egg. Just one simpleegg, and she loves my bone broth again.
Benefits of Egg Drop Soup
Great health benefits arise from this Low Carb Egg Drop Soup, as the base is a nutritious Homemade Broth, filled with Collagen, Minerals, Vitamins and Fatty Acids.
Broth or Bouillon as a base of this recipe, has got so many health benefits one would be surprised.
From my childhood till now, anytime one is sick, boiling cup of homemade broth helps greatly every single time.
I love it, my husband loves it, but my daughter …. Not so much.
But this Egg Drop Soup has changed it all.
This one is. The problem with many of the Egg Drop Soups is, that they are always added with starch to make them a bit creamier. But if you just use an egg and mix it well, you do not need any thickener at all to enjoy it fully Keto.
If you really insist and you are not satisfied with only eggs, you can always add a pinch of Xanthan Gum to thicken it. For the magic to happen with Xanthan Gum, pinch means really just a pinch. Like ¼ of a teaspoon or even less of it.
Be really careful as a little goes a long way. If you add too much of Xanthan, you might end ups with a gooey thick non-edible Keto Egg Drop Soup.
Unless you make it yourself at home and you do know what you have put inside, it will be.
Our Recipe is an Egg Drop Soup without Cornstarch.
Most of the Chinese Restaurant area adding not only Glutamine but as well other starches to make it really tasty. I would not trust that.
One of the first visits to Chinese Restaurants, when my daughter was first diagnosed is a great example. At that time she was newly diagnosed, so we really had no idea how everything works and ordered a plain soup to be on a safe side. Plain I mean, really plain. Not even veggies or chicken. It was just a clear soup. Simply water. And O my. She went so high from it, we could not believe. But one learns the lesson and since then we are really cautious.
What is the base of Egg Drop Soup?
I have used in our recipe a Bone Broth, which I make on a weekly basis and have always Mason Jars filled in the Freezer. Since our Bone Broth was made in an Instant Pot, would it be acceptable to call our Recipe Instant Pot Egg Drop Soup? I am not sure.
How To make Egg Drop Soup Without Broth?
Don’t have freezer full of homemade Bone Broth?
Not a problem. Simply use any broth you have on hand. You can also replace it with bouillon or vegetable cubes as well.
How many carbs are in Egg Drop Soup?
In Keto Egg Drop Soup, carbs are almost non-existent.
It really only adds a bit, depending on how did you make your Broth. If lots of vegetables were added in the process of cooking, some traces of carbs might have stayed. But again as I said, they are really non-existent and do not need to be counted for.
And that means you can eat this Egg Drop Soup the whole day, day after day. How awesome.
How can you flavor Keto Egg Drop Soup?
As you see from our recipe, this is pretty basic egg drop soup, and that is the one we love.
Eggs in the soup acts as a No Carb Pasta, so there is not much you might need. But.
But just in case, you would love to experiment a bit and make it more like a Chinese
Egg Drop Soup or more flavorful, here are some additions which works:
- Keto Egg Noodles
- Pieces of chicken
- Chili peppers for spiciness – my favorite

STEP BY TEP INSTRUCTIONS ON THE QUICKEST EGG DROP SOUP

First prepare a glass jar or a bowl where are you will be able to whisk or beaten eggs.
Second Step: Whisk Eggs
Pour 2 eggs into the glass container and using your whisk beat the eggs until both egg whites and egg yolks are mixed together into a smooth consistency.
If you do not own a hand whisk, using a fork should do the trick.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS
How do you store Egg Drop Soup?
Already made Egg Drop Soup can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
You can also simply freeze your ready-made bone Broth and make it in a few seconds adding whisked eggs in.

From my own experience, every time I make a Bone or Chicken Broth, I always freeze 80% of it.
Just place it into the Mason Jars and straight into the Freezer. After that, every time you need it, just take it out the night before and on the day, heat up the soup and add the eggs as per the video. There you have it. So Easy.
