Gluten Free Healthier Egg Drop Soup

Gluten Free Healthier Egg Drop Soup Recipe

Whenever I have a lunch date with my 5-year-old g-kid, Harper, she wants to go to P.F. Chang’s for some gluten free egg drop soup. So, I decided to make some at home for her and her brother. The great news is that this gluten free healthier egg drop soup recipe is quick, easy, and nutritious.

I made mine with homemade bone broth, making it even more nutritious, but you can use store bought gluten free chicken broth. I also added in some shiitake mushrooms, which have been shown to improve gut immunity and reduce inflammation.

Beaten organic, cage-free eggs (I like Nature’s Yoke) slowly stirred into the hot soup give it that characteristic silken, almost noodle-like strands of wispy eggs floating in the broth.

When you can get a healthy and delicious lunch on the table in about 10 minutes, it just doesn’t get much better than that.
