Keto Egg Drop Soup


Since I started the ketogenic diet I have been craving soup. After an abundance of beef stew and vegetable beef soup I knew I needed something different.

So on a rainy Wednesday, I made this.

At 6.7 net carb for the entire recipe, feel free to eat it all. Although it is impossible. I ate it all in 3 huge servings but it could easily serve 4.

2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1/8 cup chopped red onion
4 cups chicken stock
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large or 3 small eggs
1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
3 oz shrimp (optional)
A few sheets of nori/seaweed

In a large pot over medium heat add sesame oil and sauté onion until translucent. Pour in chicken stock (I used two cans of Swanson broth) and bring to a boil. Add soy sauce, salt, shrimp, ginger. Give it a good stir. Turn down heat slightly so the soup is gently boiling. Beat eggs in a separate bowl and very slowly pour into the broth while stirring in slow mo. My arm even got a little tired…
Rip up seaweed and just throw it on the top. This is optional but tastes good and makes you feel like an authentic Asian cook for 2 seconds. Me rikey!
