Egg Drop Soup


Egg drop soup may seem like an odd breakfast, but this fortifying bone broth is actually the perfect thing to drink in the morning.

Serves 1

1½ cups chicken bone broth

¼ teaspoon ground turmeric

1 pinch chili flakes

½ teaspoon grated fresh ginger

1 large egg

salt and pepper to taste

a squeeze of fresh lemon

1. Combine the bone broth, ground turmeric, chili flakes, and grated ginger in a small saucepan over medium heat.

2. While the mixture heats up, crack the egg in a small bowl, season with a pinch of salt, and beat with a fork.

3. When the broth is simmering, pour the egg through the holes of a slotted metal spoon directly over the broth, making egg ribbons.

4. Season to taste with salt and pepper and squeeze over some fresh lemon juice just before serving.
