Avgolemono Soup with Quinoa

Ingredients:

Quinoa replaces rice in this protein-enhanced version of a classic Mediterranean dish. Quinoa also adds a nice texture, and is a bit quicker to cook than rice. Just whisk lemon juice with eggs to form a frothy base then combine slowly with 1 cup of the hot broth. Add this mixture back into the rest of the broth and cook for just a couple of minutes to thicken. Garnish with parsley and Parmesan. Soup’s up!

Egg Drop Soup

Ingredients:

Egg drop soup is a great dish anytime. Lunch, dinner, or a meal in between, this soup is a staple. Although it only really requires 3 ingredients (broth, soy sauce and eggs), we suggest adding mushrooms and green onions (or other vegetables) to lend more substance to each spoonful.
