<article> <section> <p align="justify">There is something so soothing about a delicious soup no matter the time of year! This Keto egg drop soup is not only packed with nutrients but it tastes just like the real deal. With just a few simple ingredients you will have a delicious egg drop soup on the table in under 30 minutes!</p> <h2>Can you lose weight eating egg drop soup?</h2> <p align="justify">One serving of this Keto egg drop soup contains 13.3 grams of total fat and a whopping 30.5 grams of protein, making it a perfect choice if you are following a low carb, or ketogenic diet. However, like with all things, not all egg drop soup versions are Keto friendly, and often have thickening agents that pack an unhealthy carb punch. If you find yourself ordering egg drop soup off the menu at your favorite restaurant make sure to ask what they use to thicken the soup so you can be sure it won’t kick you out of ketosis.</p> <h2>Can you have cornstarch on Keto?</h2> <p align="justify">Cornstarch is a flourlike, white powder used frequently in recipes as a thickening agent for soups, sauces and baked goods. Although cornstarch may be great for some things, if you are following a low carb or ketogenic diet it definitely is NOT! A one ounce serving of cornstarch has about 106 calories, and a total of <b>25.6</b> grams of carbs!</p> <p><i>So what can you do?</i></p> <p align="justify">If you are looking for a cornstarch substitute so you can still create your favorite keto dishes without worrying about getting kicked out of ketosis, try these:</p> <ol> <li>Arrowroot powder</li> <li>Xanthan gum</li> <li>Chia seeds</li> <li>Flaxseed</li> </ol> </section> <hr class="divider-15 divider-thick mx-auto"> <section class="recipe"> <h2 itemprop="name" align="center">Keto Egg Drop Soup</h2> <div class="prep"> <span> <meta itemprop="prepTime" content="PT5M">Prep Time: 5 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="cookTime" content="PT25M">Cooking Time: 25 minutes</span> <span> <meta itemprop="recipeYield">Serves: </span> </div> <h3>Ingredients:</h3> <ul class="ingredients no-bullet"> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 quart bone broth</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 inch piece of lemon rind</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">2-inch nub of peeled ginger root</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 tablespoon coconut aminos</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 tablespoon sesame oil</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">1 tablespoon fish sauce</li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">4 large eggs </li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">3 green onion </li> <li itemprop="recipeIngredient">&frac14; cup cilantro</li> </ul> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium"> <h3>Instructions:</h3> <ol itemprop="recipeInstructions"> <li>Heat the broth with the lemon rind and ginger over medium heat. </li> <li>Bring to a simmer for 15 minutes then remove the ginger root and lemon peel.</li> <li>Stir in the coconut aminos, sesame oil and fish sauce.</li> <li>Whisk together the eggs.
