Stracciatella Soup, Italian Eggdrop Soup

Stracciatella (also known as Italian egg drop soup) is a light and filling soup made with chicken stock, eggs, Romano cheese, and ribbons of fresh spinach. It’s a fantastic soup on a chilly day! In Italian, “stracciatella” means “small shred,” which perfectly defines the egg “shreds” in this light, healthy soup.
This soup is one of my favorites since it’s so simple to make and uses items that I generally always have on hand eggs, stock, and Romano The soup’s simplicity, however, hides its deliciousness. It’s fantastic! It’s ideal for a cold day or a chilly body.
By the way, the word “stracciatella” is also used in Italian to identify other meals. There’s a cheese used to make burrata and chocolate gelato with shaved chocolate “shreds”.

Stracciatella from Italy and Chinese Egg Drop Soup has a lot in common. At the end of the dish, ribbons of the egg are added to a chicken broth foundation. this soup , on the other hand, resembles chicken noodle soup but without the chicken or noodles, instead of relying on Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Soy sauce, ginger, green onions, and mushrooms are all flavors found in Chinese cuisine. Both soups are quick to prepare and filling, yet they each have distinct flavors from their own cuisines.
