Italiano Egg Drop Soup

Deb Rosdahl


As we do not care for the oriental foods that much...I decided to make this soup and gave it an Italian flare! It really is a quick and delicious soup that I make for dinner or lunch and serve with a few crackers or toasted cheese. And believe it or not it really does keep you satisfied for a long time, which is a real diet plus. Truly a family fav! Enjoy :-)

How to Make Italiano Egg Drop Soup


  1. In a medium or large pot add the chicken broth, lemon juice, garlic, and sea salt and heat to a simmer over medium heat. Usually takes about 3-4 min.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk the eggs in a separate bowl until well blended. Then add the parmesan to the egg and stir.
  3. Now take the egg mixture and slowly in a circular motion pour over the broth to create ribbons or rags. Cook an additional minute or until the eggs are set.
  4. Just before serving stir in the Italian parsley and fresh ground black pepper.
  5. Serve in a pretty soup cup or bowl and garnish with additional parmesan or chives with crackers, bread, or toasted cheese sandwiches.

Sauteed or steamed, I love cabbage. It's a great source of vitamins B and C and potassium. Cabbage is an unsung hero in my mind and gets a bad rap....
