4 cups chicken bone broth
1 clove garlic, minced
Pinch ground nutmeg
2 eggs, whisked
1 cup loosely packed baby spinach, thinly sliced
1 tbsp each fresh thyme, basil, and parsley, thinly sliced (sub 1 tsp Italian seasoning)
Unrefined sea salt, to taste
1-3 tsp nutritional yeast (for cheesy flavour)
Add broth, garlic and nutmeg to a pot and bring to a boil over high heat.
Use a fork to stir the broth in a circular motion.
Reduce heat to low and gradually drizzle the whisked egg into the moving broth.
Stir gently with the fork to create thin strands of the egg — about one minute.
Add fresh herbs and baby spinach. Stir to incorporate.
Add the desired amount of sea salt and nutritional yeast (if using).
