Egg Drop Soup in Less than 10 Minutes

I’m a HUGE fan of egg drop soup but never once in my whole life thought I could make my own. Let me tell you a little’s the easiest soup I’ve ever made...ever. 

What you need:
  • 4 Cups Chicken Broth (or Bone Broth* is even better!)
  • 1 TBSP arrowroot powder
  • a dash of onion powder (or add some leeks or green onion if you have some!)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • a pinch of fresh ground pepper
  • a dash of ground ginger
  • a smidge of ground garlic
  • a splash of sesame oil
  • 4 beaten eggs
What you do:
  1. Add all the ingredients (except the eggs) to a large saucepan
  2. Bring to a boil and let soft boil for a few minutes.
  3. Add beaten eggs slowly...very create yummy egg ribbons. They will cook immediately
  4. Let soup stand for a 10 minutes or so

Enjoy with this one-pan cashew chicken!

New 4-Ingredient Protein Balls (perfect for protein snowmen)

T hese protein balls are super easy (4 ingredients!) and also super fun. I'm actually taking them to a little Christmas get together tonight...ho ho ho (or whatever snowmen say).

Anyway, I usually use unflavored protein for my protein balls but I ran out and instead played around with using vanilla protein powder (the kind I would use in a shake) and it turned out GREAT. Plus, I didn't have to add any extra sweetener...whoop!

What you need: 
  • 1 cup oatmeal made into flour (just put it in the blender and turn it on for 10 seconds or so)
  • 1 cup natural peanut butter
  • 4 scoops (or 100 grams) of vanilla protein powder...I used Orgain Vanilla Bean (it's vegan)
  • unsweetened almond milk to bind (anywhere from 2 TBSP-1/4)

What you do:

  1. Toss oatmeal flour, peanut butter and protein powder in a mixer (or use your muscles and mix it by hand...or with a spoon)
  2. Add 1 TBSP of almond milk at a time until "dough" sticks together and can be shaped...but not sticky
  3. Shape into balls or snowmen or whatever!
  4. If you like your protein balls a bit more exotic, add some chocolate chips or coconut or chia seeds or whatever you like!
