Categories: Italian, November2010, eggs, soups, spinach


  • 6 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
  • 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 tablepoons chopped fresh basil leaves
  • 1 cup lightly packed spinach leaves, cut in thin strips
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Bring the broth to a boil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. In a bowl, whisk the eggs, cheese, parsley, and basil to blend. Reduce the heat to medium-low. Stir the broth in a circular motion. Gradually drizzle the egg mixture into the moving broth, stirring gently with a fork to form thin strands of egg, about 1 minute. Stir in the spinach, then season the soup, to taste, with salt and pepper.

  2. Ladle the soup into bowls and serve.
