  • 4 cups chicken broth (homemade or store-bought)
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce (or tamari for a gluten-free option)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • Salt to taste


  1. In a saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a simmer over medium heat. Add the grated ginger and minced garlic, and let them simmer for about 2-3 minutes to infuse the broth with flavor.
  2. Stir in the soy sauce, sesame oil, and black pepper. Taste the broth and adjust the seasoning with a pinch of salt if needed, keeping in mind that soy sauce can be salty.
  3. While the broth is simmering, slowly pour the beaten eggs into the soup in a thin, steady stream. Use a fork or chopsticks to gently stir the eggs in a clockwise motion. This will create those beautiful egg ribbons characteristic of egg drop soup.
  4. Continue to cook for another 1-2 minutes until the eggs are fully set.
  5. Remove the soup from heat and garnish it with sliced green onions and chopped cilantro (if desired).
  6. Ladle the Homemade Egg Drop Soup into bowls and serve it hot. Enjoy your comforting keto-friendly soup!
