Low-Fat Egg Drop Soup

Original Recipe: Diabetes Self Management


  • 1 can (14 ounces) low-sodium, fat-free chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon lite (low-sodium) soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup liquid egg substitute
  • 2 tablespoons chopped green onions


    1. Bring chicken broth to a rolling boil over medium-high heat in a small saucepan.
    2. Add soy sauce.
    3. Slowly pour the liquid egg substitute (a measuring cup with a spout works well) into the boiling liquid. Ribbons of the egg will form naturally if the broth is at a high boil and will cook instantly.
    4. Remove from heat.
    5. Divide the liquid into four small Asian-style soup cups or small bowls. Top each bowl with an equal portion of chopped green onions.


    • Preparation time: 2 minutes.
    • Cooking time: 5 minutes.
