One of the first things I made when doing the Spring Clean Eats challenge, was Breakfast Soup. I’ve seen some other paleo folks have soup for breakfast and the idea intrigued me.
I didn’t want anything too heavy, like a stew, and I didn’t want anything that was going to be loaded down with protein and veggie.
I wanted a light soup with some protein, a little veg, and lots of flavor. I started thinking about how to approach this and decided that egg drop style soup seemed like it fit the bill.
I played around with the recipe and now have a new favorite way to eat some eggs and veggies in the morning.
Breakfast Soup is quick to make and perfect for those mornings when you might be feeling a little sluggish or chilly days when you don’t want to get out of your PJs.
If you like savory breakfasts, this soup will hit the spot!
Andrea’s Breakfast Soup
- 4C Chicken Stock
- 1/4-1/2 tsp Soy Sauce**
- 1/2tsp Garlic Powder
- Large Handful (or about 2C) of Spinach, finally chopped
- 3 Green Onions, thinly sliced
- 2 Eggs, Whisked
In a large sauce pan, bring the stock up to a simmer. Add in the soy sauce and the garlic powder. Then add in the spinach and allow to cook until the spinach is fully wilted. Start whisking the soup with a fork and slowly drizzle in the eggs. The eggs will puff and cook immediately. Continue until all the eggs are in the soup. Bring soup back up to a simmer. Remove from heat and ladle into soup bowls. Garnish with green onions and serve immediately.
**If you want to make this completely paleo, substitute coconut amnios for the soy sauce.
You decide how much soy sauce or coconut amnios you want to add. I usually do 1/4 tsp but you can do up to 1/2 tsp without overpowering the soup too much. Feel free to add in a few drops of fish sauce as well! Or toss on some chopped cilantro as a garnish for extra kick.
We love this soup, it has a comforting quality to it and makes us feel energized. It’s a soup that will stick with you and not leave you feeling hungry after an hour.
If you’re looking for something new to try for breakfast, go for soup!
