Ingredients

  • Vegetable oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup fresh spinach (optional), roughly chopped
  • 4 cups chicken, beef or vegetable stock
  • 3 to 4 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, divided
  • Croutons or bite-size pieces of crusty bread (optional)

Instructions

Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the onions and parsley, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until the onions are golden but not brown. Add the spinach and, after a quick sauté, pour in the broth and bring it to a boil.

In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs with 1 tablespoon of the cheese.

Drizzle the egg mixture into the broth while stirring the broth gently with a fork to form thin strands of egg, about 1 minute.

Ladle the soup into individual bowls. Add croutons or crusty bread, if using. Finish with the remaining Parmesan and enjoy.
