LOW CARB 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.

After a few phone calls with my friend, who told me it was a simple broth, which my daughter does not like in our house, my friends mentioned adding an egg into it.

I love it, my husband loves it, but my daughter …. Not so much.
But this recipe has changed it all.
This one is. The problem with many of the egg drop soups is that they are always filled 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.

Really super low carb egg drop soup recipe.
HOW TO THICKEN KETO SOUP?
If you really insist and you are not satisfied with only eggs, you can always add a pinch of Xanthan Gum into a hot broth 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 Xanthan gum to thicken, you might end up with a gooey thick non-edible sauce.
IS CHINESE EGG DROP SOUP KETO FRIENDLY?
Chinese soup in the restaurant would less likely fall into a keto, especially with net carbs count.
Unless you make it yourself at home and you do know what you have put inside, it will not be.
Our recipe is an egg drop soup recipe without cornstarch.
Most of the Chinese restaurants are adding not only Glutamine but 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. Ordered a plain soup to be on a safe side. Plain I mean, really plain. They did not even had to add the chicken or veggies. It was just a clear flavourful water if I can call that so. Simply water.
And O my. Her blood sugar went so high from it, we could not believe it. One learns the lesson and since then we are really cautious.
WHAT IS THE BASE OF EGG DROP SOUP?
The way this egg drop soup is made, I have used in our recipe a Bone broth, which I make on a weekly basis. Have always Mason Jars filled in the Freezer. Since our 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 a freezer full of homemade broth?
Not a problem. Simply use any broth you have on hand. You can also replace it with bouillon or vegetable cubes.
HOW MANY CARBS ARE IN EGG DROP SOUP?
In keto egg drop soup, carbs are almost non-existent.
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.

STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON THE QUICKEST EASY EGG DROP SOUP
First step: Eggs
First prepare a glass jar or a bowl where you will be able to whisk eggs.
Second step: Whisk Eggs
Pour one to two eggs into the glass container. Using your whisk, beat the eggs until both egg whites and egg yolks are mixed together into a smooth consistency.
For the best egg drop, I would suggest room temperature eggs.
If you do not own a hand whisk, using a fork should do the trick.
Once both of the eggs are whisked, set them aside.
Third step: Broth
Using your stove, pour broth into the cooking pot and bring the soup to boil.
Once the broth is boiled, set the pot over medium high heat.
Fourth step: Pour
Through the fork as you see in the video, slowly pour the egg into the cooking pot. The egg forms a kind of velvet egg flower look in the bowl.
If you wish, you can let the tasty soup cook a bit more. Now you can add extra ingredients mentioned above in the post.
Fifth step: Mix
After all the egg mixture has been gently poured through the fork, mix it all together and separate clumps in case any have occurred.
