Stracciatella Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Stracciatella which belongs to the Soups recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 quart (960 ml) chicken broth, divided
  2. 2 eggs
  3. cup (50 g) grated Parmesan cheese
  4. teaspoon lemon juice
  5. Pinch of nutmeg
  6. teaspoon dried marjoram

Cooking Instructions

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.
