This is a great meal to stretch out your ingredients.
We had a carton of eggs that had to be consumed or cooked that day. We are running low on fresh veggies, but we still have frozen vegetables. And we had leftover rice in the refrigerator. Kirin asked our son Ryan if he wanted fried rice or egg drop soup. So glad he chose this because it was our first time making it, but it was delicious and something we plan on making again.
Note: It’s not the ideal amount of protein or good carbs per serving, but again, if you need help stretching out your ingredients, soups are a great way to go because they are filling and nourishing.
Prep time: 5 min
Total time: 20 minutes
- 12 eggs – using only the yolks, or 1 ½ cup of liquid egg whites in a carton
- 1 package of Frozen veggies – (Get creative here using what you have. We used 1 12oz package of frozen stir fry vegetables + 1 ½ cups of frozen peas)
- 2 ½ cups cooked rice
- 10 cups Chicken or vegetable stock, broth, or 3 tbsp of Better than Bouillon (chicken or vegetable base) mixed into 10 cups of water
- 2-3 tbsp tamari, soy sauce
- 1 tsp toasted sesame oil, (if you only have neutral flavored oils like avocado, grapeseed, etc, that’s fine – but you may want to add in additional seasonings)
- Optional: Non-iodized salt
- Optional: Pepper
- Put frozen veggies in a large pot on high heat.
- Stir in toasted sesame oil, and tamari. Stir occasionally until the veggies begin to thaw. About 4-5 minutes.
- Add rice, and your stock and bring to a boil.
- Once it’s boiling, slowly pour in the egg whites while stirring the entire time.
- Season with optional salt and pepper. Enjoy!
