Keto Egg Drop Soup

150 ratings

There’s not much to say about Egg Drop Soup. The flavors are built on a few fresh spices. There’s fragrant garlic, sweet ginger, and ever-so-slightly spicy sesame seeds. Add a dash of freshness from the green onion, and you have layers of delicious goodness to enhance a couple protein-packed eggs. Wow, who are we kidding? Egg Drop Soup sounds pretty great!

18 min

  • Step 1

    Heat the olive oil in a soup pot on medium heat. Toss in the sesame seeds, minced garlic, and minced ginger. Cook them for about 60 seconds so the ingredients become fragrant.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Pour in the chicken broth. Cover the soup pot and bring the liquid to a simmer. Meanwhile, whisk together the egg, salt, and pepper in a bowl. Leave the egg only halfway whisked.
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Once the soup is at a strong simmer, pour the egg mixture in by whipping it with a fork and gently drizzling it into the soup. The egg should cook immediately and be very stringy. Use the fork to break up any large pieces of egg in the soup.
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    Chop the green onion and stir it into the soup. Let the soup simmer uncovered for about 5 minutes. Serve hot!

    I made this with miso paste instead of chicken broth and it was delicious

      Very Good! We really liked it but shouldn’t have used the fat free broth.

              So quick and tasty. I sneaked in some grated parmesan with the eggs too :)

                Quick, easy and flavorful! Since I’m working with what I have on hand, my only modification was using the green onion with dehydrated chives, and I used half the amount. Loved the surprise bursts of flavor with the ginger and garlic. Warming and very filling!!

                        Chicken broth - not a vegetarian recipe

                          You can always use a vegetable broth

                          It is very easy to make vegetarian. I'm low sodium, there aren't many recipes that are tailored to this. So, I'm flexible and I adapt recipes to fit my needs.

                            Can you add an edit button? I used bullion cub because I didn't have enough broth and I added sautéed in butter mushroom and onions. Delicious!

                          This was fantastic! I used 1 TBS of Olive Oil and 1 TBS of Sesame Oil, and added a splash of Soy Sauce...

                          One of my absolute new favourites. So fresh and tasty. Didn’t need all the onion tho. I added a little sesame oil too.

                            So good. I left out sesame seeds and scallions because I didn’t have any on hand. Added peas and made it with vegetable bouillon. Simple and delicious.

                              I loved it. It was easy on my tummy after just coming off a fast.

                                I love it. And if my son likes it and he knows it keto then you know it's good.

                                  Very bland. Feels like it’s missing something. I think if I make this again I will be adding more spices and some sort of meat to it.

                                    I haven’t tried it but if I do, I’ll probably add chicken

                                  Thanks for the great idea of egg drop soup! I modified it quite a bit - cooked a little Cumin, Corriander, and Turmeric and a pinch of pepper in a little ghee - sautéed in a little chopped mushrooms and zucchini - added low sodium chicken bone broth and a 6 drops of toasted sesame oil - then drizzled in the egg. YUM !!! I love soup and am not a big meat eater so this is a good way to get my protein. So satisfying. Thanks for great idea!!!!
