Egg drop soup – literally meaning – egg flower soup, has become my breakfast during the Detox Challenge and I am loving it! This Paleo Egg Drop Soup is fine for GAPS Intro Stage 2 if you leave out the seasoning and scallion and by Stage 3, you are good to go with the full recipe.

As a breakfast soup, this Paleo egg drop soup ensures that I get to drink a large cup of broth every day. This combination is so easy to digest – it is actually the perfect way to start the day!

The broth is made even more nutritious with the addition of a large pastured egg that is gently streamed into the simmering soup. Silky flakes float to the surface and create body and texture to the broth.

With the addition of simple seasonings, it far surpasses the MSG laden egg drop soup that is served in a restaurant. Here, the mineral rich sea salt and fresh ginger are high quality seasonings that add to the nutrient content.

Ginger Gives Paleo Egg Drop Soups Its Heat

Ginger is a fabulous root for giving heat and flavor to soups and gravies.

Ginger is known for it’s medicinal benefits for anything inflammatory from morning sickness to menstrual cramps to migraines and beyond.

The coconut aminos are a good substitute for soy sauce. While authentic fermented soy sauce is acceptable to some people in small quantities, others prefer not to have any soy.

Coconut aminos is a dark, amino acid liquid that is harvested directly from coconut tree sap. It contains 17 naturally-occurring amino acids. The sap is combined with mineral rich sea salt to create a sauce that is like soy sauce, but is made of liquid aminos that can help flavor salad dressings, vegetable dishes, sauces and Asian style dishes.

This is a raw product and has no processed or hydrolized ingredients that may create MSG. People who are sensitive to MSG are generally able to use coconut aminos.

Technically coconut aminos should only be used on the full GAPS diet. However, there is such a small amount, I did use it even though I am on GAPS Intro right now.
