Comforting Keto Egg Drop Soup

The first time I was introduced to Egg Drop Soup was when I was in my early 20’s and a friend worked at a high end Vancouver restaurant. 

They made it for me and I couldn’t believe how easy and simple it was.  Broth, eggs, lots of pepper and a sprinkle of green on top for visual appeal.

To this day I still make it when I have a cold or feel like just having a fast and hot bowl of keto compliant soup.

  • To avoid a ‘scrambled eggs in liquid’ soup, keep whisking the eggs while you slowly pour into the boiling water or broth  (see video)
  • The end result should be feathery strands of egg not big lumps.
  • If you are doing the keto Egg Fast just use water but put in the suggested spices and lots of salt!

  1. The Chinese way is add the egg to the hot broth while stirring, no scrambled eggs that way.🥣 HTH
    It is also called Egg Flower Soup

  2. I am not fond of egg drop soup or any broths but really love hot and sour soup. I am wondering if I could add a little soy sauce, vinegar and sweetener to up the flavor, without getting too far “out of bounds” for doing the egg fast. Maybe a little sesame oil, also??
    Thanks in advance for your reply ;-D

    1. On the egg fast you can use condiments sparingly so I’m thinking you could play with those items and see how it goes!

      1. Thank you so much for your kind reply! I was hoping it might be ok to try that. I don’t know for sure when I’ll do that, but I’ll let you know if/when/how it goes LOL.
        Maybe YOU could try it, too?!
        THANKS for all the info and wonderful recipes!

  3. I honestly didn’t have high hopes for this, but it was surprisingly delicious. In my opinion it just tastes like a broth. I’ve never had egg drop soup before this, so I’m not sure if that’s the usual. Overall this recipe is great for an egg fast, and I’m really happy I found it.

    1. I love that because the very first time it was suggested to me to try at a restaurant I was absolutely convinced it couldn’t possibly be good! And here we are! Glad you were brave!
