Stracciatella Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy
Low carb recipe for Stracciatella which belongs to the Soups recipe category.
- 1 quart (960 ml) chicken broth, divided
- 2 eggs
- cup (50 g) grated Parmesan cheese
- teaspoon lemon juice
- Pinch of nutmeg
- teaspoon dried marjoram
Put cup (60 ml) of the broth in a glass measuring cup or small pitcher.
Pour the rest into a large saucepan over medium heat.
Add the eggs to the broth in the measuring cup and beat with a fork.
Then add the Parmesan, lemon juice, and nutmeg and beat with a fork until well blended.
When the broth in the saucepan is simmering, stir it with a fork as you add small amounts of the egg and cheese mixture until it's all stirred in.
(Don't expect this to form long shreds like Chinese eggdrop soup; because of the Parmesan, it makes small, fluffy particles instead.
) Add the marjoram, crushing it a bit between your fingers, and simmer the soup for another minute or so before serving.
