European Egg Drop Soup

Yum
As the cold season starts to finally let up, I complete my final delicious soup until the months of fall. I have never been a big fan of eating soup on hot summer days, the time of year just doesn't give me that craving for something warm and hearty to put into my stomach. As I've mentioned before soups where always a popular choice in my household growing up, not only are they filling but you can always accompany them with a sandwich or have them as a starter to any meal.

Make sure that you use at least a 5 quart pot when preparing the soup, I have chosen to use spinach in the soup but kale or collard work just as well and the pasta can be any from elbow, bowtie or ditalini. If you have the time you can make your own chicken broth or just get a box of low sodium chicken broth from your local grocers. You will need to finely chop the vegetables so if you have a chopper at home, this would be ideal especially to get the onion cut up.
