You’re going to love this tomato cauliflower egg drop soup… for more reasons than you realize. Yes, it tastes good. But it’s also an easy way to help you as you reset your diet or stick to a plant-and-protein diet.
Let’s start with the cauliflower rice part. We keep hearing about cauliflower rice, but we hadn’t thought much about cooking with it until we spent 30 days trying out the Whole30 diet. Cauliflower rice is great if you’re eating paleo, grain-free, or veggie-centric. However, before Whole30, it sounded like more work than it was worth. But then we started seeing it sold already “riced” in packages as “cauliflower crumbles” or some variation, and suddenly it seemed a lot more convenient.
And that’s when we finally realized – it’s so good! Depending on how you cook it, it doesn’t have to taste like cauliflower at all. For instance, we’ve been making it for breakfast by sauteeing it in a pan, adding some other chopped veggies, and then adding an egg or two to make “fried rice” – It’s SO tasty, and you will never miss the actual rice.
This Tomato Cauliflower Egg Drop Soup came about on a chilly day when we felt like making soup but didn’t want anything too heavy or complicated. Time-wise, it’s a winner – it’s done in 30 minutes. And comfort-wise, it brings us back to childhood days of tomato egg-drop soup.
Tomato Cauliflower Egg Drop Soup
- 1 14.5-oz can of chicken broth gluten-free, with no sugar added
- 1 28-oz can crushed tomatoes with no sugar added
- 1 1/2 cups riced cauliflower
- 1 egg beaten
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- Freshly ground pepper to taste
Pour the chicken broth and crushed tomatoes into a large saucepan; bring the mixture to a boil. Add the riced cauliflower and reduce heat to a simmer; simmer uncovered for 25 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour the beaten egg into the soup and stir rapidly so that the egg pieces break up. Allow the mixture to simmer for two more minutes so that egg is cooked. Add salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
