Egg Drop Soup Recipe

So this is super simple, super low-calorie / fat / sugar / yada yada, and gluten free. I'm also giving you the single serving recipe, so double triple etc. as needed.

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 chicken bouillon cube  OR
  • 2 cups chicken broth (either storebought or homemade)
  • 1 egg
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Sea Salt
  • Black Pepper
  • Soy sauce (low sodium) - optional
  • Siracha sauce - optional
In a small saucepan, bring the water or broth to boil.  Add in garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper to taste.  In separate dish, beat the egg.  When water begins to boil, slowly pour in the beaten egg.  It will cook almost instantaneously.  I recommend tasting a bit of the liquid here in case you need to add in more seasoning.  Let it boil for 30 seconds, then reduce heat.  Add soy sauce and siracha to taste.

Pour in a bowl and enjoy!

This is a pretty fast and easy (and surprisingly filling) meal.  You can even do it at the office!  Boiling water and an egg along with some basic seasoning - yum!  The better your chicken broth or bouillon, the better your soup.
