How to Make a Delicious Holiday version of Egg Drop Soup (vegetarian version)

Save

Egg drop soup is easier than you think! In this simple how to I will teach you how to make vegetarian friendly egg drop soup holiday style!

Things You'll Need

  • Vegetable OR "no chicken" broth
  • 2-3 eggs/ egg alternative
  • stove
  • pot or pan
  • nutmeg
  • pinch of cinnamon
  • spinach
  • cottage cheese, white cheese cubes or pieces or cheese alternative
  • optional red pepper flake
  • garlic
  • Go out and buy, or get your veggie broth from the fridge.

  • Place a small pot/pan on the stove and bring your broth to a boil. I usually use just enough for me, or for two. Considering I cook for a vegetarian, and a meat eater, I end up with two pots sometimes! If you cook just enough for yourself, you will find that you get several uses out of your broth. Use about 1/3 of the box for one.

  • While the broth is heating up take 2-3 eggs, or egg alternatives, depending on how much soup you want to make, and whisk them all up. Some people choose to use the egg whites only, or take out 2 yolks and use one. This is entirely up to you. The egg whites only make for a prettier display. I often use the entire egg as it is filling, and delicious.

  • When the broth comes to a boil slowly "drop" your egg mixture inside. Mix the soup up and watch the eggs form before your eyes! Turn down the heat to about 2, it should be simmering.

  • Right after turning down the heat on the oven add white cubed cheese, or a tofu/cheese alternative, and spinach to this, let it cook for just long enough to see the spinach softening. There is no "set amount" of spinach, I put in quite a bit, about a cup and half for the veg. version. Just put it in to your taste, fresh spinach is the best. The more you put, the heartier the soup. I have never used canned Spinach in this recipe, and I do not recommend it as it tastes entirely different.

  • Spice it up! Put in about an eight of a teaspoon of nutmeg, just a teeny pinch of cinnamon, and salt and pepper to taste. You can play around with spices as well, as this is a particularly fun recipe to play around with. I also put a little paprika in it! Toss in salt and pepper to taste. A bit of garlic powder, and red pepper flake if you like spice is also nice! It also makes for a quite different tasting soup, that is holiday friendly, filling, and so easy!

Tips & Warnings

  • Don't let your soup get too hot or it will burn, stir it every now and then, this is a basic for cooking ^_^
