Italian Egg-Drop Soup

March/April 2010

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (131 votes)

Italian egg-drop soup, Stracciatella, is traditionally a light soup made with just chicken broth, eggs and herbs. We added pasta, chickpeas and arugula to turn it into a meal. Serve with: Garlic bread and Caesar salad.

"EXCELLENT quick dinner soup!! I added some chopped kale and swiss chard as that is what I had on hand and I also added a whole can of chick peas and 4 minced garlic cloves (I LOVE garlic), Served it with rustic whole wheat bread and wine...

If you like scrambled eggs...

The eggs scrambled, and it was absolutely disgusting. I had to throw the entire pot out. I put the pot on low and waited and waited before putting the eggs in because I didn't want them to scramble. They feathered nicely at first but then as the soup sat (even with the burner off!) the eggs scrambled and things were gross. I had one bowl of the soup right after cooking and it was just okay.

I was really craving egg drop soup and was sorely disappointed. What a waste.

Quick. That's about it.

Awesome Soup

This was awesome! It tastes very much like Italian soups I have had in restaurants. I did make a few changes. Like others commented, I used the whole can of chickpeas. I think it's odd that this recipe calls for a 7oz can when I have only ever seen 14oz. It adds about 30-40 cals and a bit of fat per serving if you go for a whole 14oz can.

I also subbed 3 tbsp better than boullion vegetarian chicken base with 8 cups boiling water for the broth/water. It was pretty salty, but I like a lot of salt in my food.

Side note: The new comment system and log-in is nice, but the tip to "pretend you're on the debate team and make your point" is kind of silly. If I were on the debate team, I would argue that this tip seems to suggest commenters wouldn't be helpful without prompting, while I have always found the comments on this site to be generally helpful. :)

quick, easy, high protein

We loved this recipe. I used an entire can of chickpeas and also added some sliced celery in the beginning and thought they were great additions. It was quick and easy to make, I love that it is so healthy but so tasty! We're adding this to the recipe box!

I love this soup. I use spinach instead of arugula. I lost my issue where this recipe was on and had to look up on the website. I'm making it for dinner tonight. I am all about fast and simple. Love it.
