Egg Flower and Shrimp Soup
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes
This is a simple and delicious Chinese soup. You can make it more of a main dish by doubling the amount of shrimp or you can substitute thinly sliced boneless chicken pieces instead of shrimp, or tofu and vegetable broth for a vegetarian version. For lower carbs, eliminate the peas.
6 cups chicken broth, gluten free, reduced sodium (or vegetable broth, reduced sodium)
1 teaspoon corn starch
1 tablespoon soy sauce, gluten free, low sodium
1 teaspoon garlic, minced
1/2 pound shrimp, raw (medium or large)
1 carrot(s), shredded
1 cup mushrooms, Crimini or button or combo, sliced
2 egg(s), large, beaten
1 cup peas, frozen, ( omit for lower carb version)
4 green onion(s)
Combine cornstarch and broth in a medium saucepan and whisk together until fully dissolved. Turn heat on to medium and bring to a low boil. Add soy sauce and garlic and stir. Add shredded carrots and sliced mushrooms, stir and cook for about 2 minutes. Add shrimp and cook for 3 minutes. Add peas and stir. Reduce heat to simmer. Slowly pour beaten eggs into soup and stir. Serve in bowls and top with green onions.
