I find the strangest gifs sometimes.
I was looking for something egg related to go with this recipe for low carb egg drop soup and I found this very odd gif. (below) What’s going on in this egg carton? What emotion is this gif meant to express?
I have no idea.
Anyhoo, let’s talk low carb egg drop soup.
It’s a Chinese restaurant appetizer that you make for yourself at home. It’s one of the easiest soups to make and it comes together really quickly. And there are just 3g net carbs in a bowl of this soup. (Compared to 10g net carbs in a normal bowl of egg drop soup.)
There are four steps to this keto soup.
First you infuse some chicken broth with ginger, garlic and coconut aminos (or soy sauce). Then you thicken the soup with a little arrowroot starch. And finally, the fun part: whisking in the eggs. Sprinkle some scallions on top and enjoy.
Ok, now back to finding bizarre and inscrutable gifs. Chow!
