Egg drop soup just got better, and healthier, with this delicious version packed with healthy chickpeas and greens. This quick soup recipe can be ready in 30 minutes.


    • 3 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth (gluten free if needed)
    • 3 cups water
    • 1 can (14 oz) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
    • 1 bunch green onions, sliced, whites and greens divided
    • 3 garlic cloves, minced
    • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
    • 3 cups chopped arugula or kale, tough stems removed
    • 4 large eggs, lightly beaten
    • Black pepper to taste
    • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
    • 6 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese


    • In a large saucepan, combine broth, water, chickpeas, onion whites, garlic and nutmeg; cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Uncover and boil for 3 minutes.
    • Stir in arugula and cook until wilted, about 1 minute. Reduce heat to simmer. While stirring the soup constantly, slowly add eggs; cook for 2 minutes. (The cooked egg will look like feathery strands.) Season with pepper and stir in the onion greens and lemon juice. Serve immediately with Parmesan.
