Soy sauce or liquid aminos
How To Make It
Add the broth, green onion roots, and seasonings to a bot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to let the soup simmer.
Whisk together the eggs and egg yolk in a bowl.
Use a wooden spoon to stir the chicken broth in one direction in a circle. Slowly pour the eggs into the soup while you’re still stirring.
Pour the soup into 2 bowls and serve with green onions on top.
- If you’d like thicker soup, add xanthan gum! Set aside 1/4 of the chicken broth and mix in 2 teaspoons of xanthan gum. Add it to the soup after you’ve added the eggs.
- The bottoms of the green onions go into the soup to give it flavor, while the tops are just leafy green goodness to garnish with. Make sure to add the bottoms before heating the soup to allow them to get soft and flavor the broth.
- For vegetarian soup, use vegetable broth instead of chicken.
