Egg Drop Soup, Good on a Cold Winter Night

With cold and flu season here there is something comforting about a nice hot bowl of chicken soup. Egg Drop Soup is a good chicken base soup with eggs added for extra benefits. Chicken soup has been around for centuries. Not only is it said Chicken broth will help a cold but it is also good for thinning your sinuses and warming you up. Homemade soup is beneficial to the whole body. This is a recipe that I have made many times over the years. You can change the amount of eggs you put in, if people don’t care for the egg. I have also added peas or green beans to give it more color and added benefits of veggies.

While it is still steaming hot inhale the wonderful smells and allow the steam to help moisten the inside of your nose. This is really helpful with the dry heat produced by most heaters in the home. With allergies and cold weather this is always a help.

Unless you are making this entirely from scratch which making the broth takes time to simmer and bring out the flavors, this recipe can be ready in under 30 minutes.

Egg Drop Soup

3 cups Chicken Broth (I make homemade for this)

1/2 cup Shallots

3/4 cup Chicken cut or shredded

1/4 tsp Pepper

1/4 tsp Garlic Powder

2 Eggs

1/4 tsp Salt

Dash of Soy Sauce (I use Braggs Liquid Aminos)

1/2 tsp Corn Oil (or an oil you prefer)

1 pinch Gluten Free Flour

Combine everything except the flour and the eggs. In a saucepan bring to a rapid boil. After it starts to boil whisk in the flour. Let this boil while you prepare the eggs. Put the eggs in a bowl and mix gently. Do not whisk the eggs, you just want the yolks broken and slightly mixed into the white. Once you are done with the eggs, remove the pan from the heat. Pour eggs thru a fork into the soup a little at a time, stirring the soup after each addition. Serve hot. Makes about 4 cups of soup.

Braggs Liquid Aminos tastes just like soy sauce. I use it in my Chinese food recipes to homemade chicken noodle and dumplings. It is gluten free and is a non GMO product and is made from vegetable proteins from soybeans and Braggs says that they have half the sodium as regular soy sauce.

I am the mother of 4 grown children that I am proud of and 6 beautiful grandchildren. I have the love and support of my wonderful soulmate Brian. He stands by me no matter how hard I am to handle and for that I am eternally grateful. With his encouragement and support it has pushed me to want to do better and has encouraged me in my writing and wanting to help others. I am a beginning blogger on allergies and a product reviewer. I write my blog because when I was diagnosed with allergies, I had no help on what I was to do. I want this to be a place people can discuss and learn together how to ease the burden of the allergy seasons, whether it is seasonal, indoor, outdoor or food and lucky me, I have some of each. I love the 80's, gardening, crafts and cooking. I enjoy DIY projects and taking things that others would throw out and making useful again. I enjoy going to the beach and relaxing or camping in the woods. I love the great outdoors, football and most of all I LOVE and am very PROUD of our US MILITARY men and women.
