So Simple…

Usually egg drop soup is a simple bone broth with an whisked egg dropped in. Bone broth is  mineral rich and naturally raised eggs are high in protein and healthy fats. You can use your own homemade chicken broth, BUT if you would prefer to use store bought I recommend using  Kettle & Fire Chicken Bone Broth because it is made with top notch ingredients and has incredible flavor.

Italians… I Love Them!

Leave it to the Italians take this simple  two ingredient soup up a notch by adding rich flavorful Parmesan cheese. I love Italians. And quick meals. This thick, rich, filling soup takes about five minutes to make!

If you wish to make this light soup a little more substantial you could add rotisserie chicken, cooked pasta or croutons. We like to garnish ours with chives from the garden and toasted pine nuts. If you would like to see more variations of egg drop soup, click here.
