Spinach and Egg Drop Soup
Spinach and Egg Drop Soup
(Zuppa alla Stracciatella con Spinaci)
 

Ingredients:


1 (12-inch) length of crusty baguette, halved lengthwise, then cut crosswise into thirds
Extra virgin olive oil
2 cups water
3 cups
(24 fl oz) chicken broth
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 (10-oz) package frozen chopped spinach (not thawed)
1 oz finely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese (about 1/2 cup)
2 large eggs, beaten
 
Directions:
 
Put oven rack in lower third of oven and preheat oven to 400 F.

Brush cut sides of baguette with olive oil.
 
Arrange, cut sides up, on a baking sheet and bake until golden, about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat water with broth, salt and pepper in a 2 to 2 and 1/2 quart saucepan over moderate heat until hot.
 
Stir in frozen spinach, cheese and simmer, covered, stirring occasionally, until spinach is just tender, about 8 minutes.

Add beaten eggs in a slow, steady stream, stirring constantly.

Serve with freshly ground pepper and a slice of toasted baguette in the soup. Serves 6.
 
That's it!
