Anti-Inflammatory Egg Drop Soup

Anti-Inflammatory Egg Drop SoupPin recipeFollow us 48.7k

This egg drop soup is perfect for chilly autumn days. It cannot be any easier and takes less than 20 minutes to prepare. Just like my Keto Golden Milk, this recipe uses turmeric and ginger. Turmeric is a powerful adaptogen providing a myriad of health benefits: it's immune-boosting, and has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

I am so glad I found your site, so much info!
I had made some bone broth this past weekend, and used it for this soup to night. I started having a sore throat today at work, and had seen this recipe and thought I'd try it.
It tasted so good. I added a pre cooked chicken breast diced that needed to be eaten. I also added juice of half a lemon, and plopped the lemon rind into the simmering pot, then fished it out before I served the soup. Lemon just goes with any kind of chicken soup to me.
I am really enjoying your site, this is just what I needed to encourage me in my keto journey!


Thank you Amie! That sounds fantastic, especially the addition of lemon! Smile


Thank you for the great recipe. Made it tonight and it was delicious.  One little typo you Amy want to the second line of the ingredients you say "or ground ginger". I think it should say "or ground turmeric ". Thanks again for you recipe.


Thank you for your kind words and for spotting the typo, Debbie!


This looks gorgeous, can't wait to try it! But can it be frozen? Can't exactly scale it down to 1 or 2 servings because of the number of eggs...


Yes it can! I'd keep half in the fridge and freeze the remaining soup (container of freezer bag).


When do you add the mushrooms?


Step 3 Smile


Made this last night- Super tasty, thanks!
My Fiance was actually the one who cooked it and pointed out that your steps don't actually say when to add the mushrooms. Just a head up!
Thanks again for the delicious meal!


Thank you for your kind words Kezia, I'll fix it now! Smile
