Egg Drop Soup | Whole30

I've been on the hunt to make something light to eat lately. I believe I've come down with a not-so-serious stomach bug that has been causing my stomach trouble. Egg drop soup comes together in minutes, it's tasty yet very subtle on flavors and perfect for times like these when your stomach can't handle much more. Not to forget that this recipe is totally Whole30 oriented. Don't worry this soup can be way more than just something light but there's endless possibilities  Add spinach or some other vegetables or if you want it a little heavier put some noodles in it. Quick and easy. Perfect for a cold winter day! 

1 tablespoon coconut oil
2 tablespoons almond flour
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon celery leaves, chopped
2 cups Bella mushrooms or shiitake 
1 bunch green onion, chopped
4 cups chicken broth
4 cups water
4 eggs
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon caraway seeds
salt & pepper to taste

1// Start out by making a roux. Add coconut oil and let it melt completely on medium heat. Slowly add almond flour and whisk as you go. This will insure that the flour doesn't burn. Allow the roux to cook until slightly browned. Add paprika and stir. 

2// Start to add in the chicken broth. Slowly. Whisk thoroughly making sure that the flour does not get chunky. Next add in mushrooms, celery leaves and green onion. Pour in water. Put a lid on it and let the soup come to a boil. Once the mushrooms are cooked add in soy sauce and caraway seed. If you have caraway seed powder you can use that if you don't like the seeds in your soup. I love them! 

3// Take the four eggs and beat them in a separate bowl. At this point make sure that the soup is not boiling, otherwise the egg with completely turn to mush in the soup. Using a wooden spoon stir the soup creating a whirlpool. Pour in the eggs while still stirring. Depending on the speed at which you stir will determine the consistence of your eggs inside of the soup. If you want the eggs to be thicker then don't stir the soup at all. Otherwise in order to get the threads of egg stir in one directions and then to the other direction. Let the egg set and cook and your are done!

Remember when I said you can put some noodles in it to add a little something. These are a great addition! Trader Joe's has some really yummy mini chicken & cilantro wontons. They warm up nicely in the hot soup. It was a perfect addition to the soup and enticed my husband to eat it!
