Egg Thread Soup with Asparagus

Stirring eggs into simmering broth is a classic technique for adding nourishment and body to soup. Asparagus gives it a mild, sweet flavor and a bit of texture. Serve this quick soup with Parmesan Crisps or sprinkle with grated Parmesan.

Serves 8

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 20 min.

Ingredients

  • 8 cups homemade chicken broth, fat skimmed, or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup pastina, or other tiny pasta, such as alphabet or stars
  • 12 ounces asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2-inch diagonal pieces (2 cups)
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, optional

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Bring broth to a boil in a Dutch oven or soup pot. Stir in pasta. Cook, uncovered, over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until pasta is just tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in asparagus; cook for 2 minutes. Reduce heat to medium.

Step 2

Break eggs into a large measuring cup and whisk until well blended. Add to the gently boiling soup in a thin, steady stream, stirring constantly with a fork. (Slow stirring will produce large threads; rapid stirring will break the threads up into small pieces.) Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice. Taste, adding salt if desired.
