Dinner tonight:Stracciatella (Italian Egg Drop Soup)

For a quick, healthy dinner on a cold night try Stracciatella!

Stracciatella comes from the Italian word stracciato meaning ragged or shredded…

  • You begin with a pot of 6 cups Chicken Broth (you can use Veggie Broth too!)
  • 3 large Eggs (more if you wish to use only eggwhites)
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped Italian parsley
  • a generous handful of chopped fresh Spinach.
  • freshly grated Nutmeg (just a pinch)
  • Sea Salt and Fresh Black Pepper to taste.

Bring the broth to boil in a saucepan.  Combine eggs, parsley, cheese and nutmeg whisk together in a separate bowl.

Whisk the mixture into the boiling stock and reduce heat to low. Continue to whisk for 3 to 4 minutes. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and divide evenly among 6 warmed soup bowls. Serve immediately, topped with more grated cheese if desired. This is also delicious if you float a slice of garlic rubbed toasted baguette bread on top!  You could add more veggies or mushrooms too!

Mangia!
