Spring soup with poached egg - paleo, gluten-free, dairy free
This is something I make all the time (for breakfast, lunch, and dinner), so I thought I would share it with everyone even though it’s not spring.

It’s so simple (3 ingredients) and has a really great clean feel – I love it.

First Ingredient: Chicken Broth

You can use homemade chicken broth or use a store-bought one.

Just bring the broth to a boil in a saucepan.

Second Ingredient: Eggs

You want to turn down the heat so that there’s just a gentle simmer and then poach your eggs first by stirring the broth in a circular manner and then cracking one egg at a time into the broth. Cook for 5 minutes for a slightly-runny egg. For more details on how to poach eggs, take a look at this post.

When the eggs are done, remove from the broth and place each egg into a bowl.

Third Ingredient: Romaine Lettuce

Chop the romaine lettuce into thin strips and drop into the broth.

Cook for a few minutes until slightly wilted and then ladle the soup with the lettuce into the bowls with the poached egg.

    I’ve always wanted to cook lettuce but I’ve never tried. Does it work with all lettuces? This looks great!
