This past week I went to visit the school that I am going to be student teaching in next year. I was so excited to meet my cooperating teacher and look around! Only problem is, I had an AWFUL cough. Like the congested kind that makes you lose your voice and forces you to either cough harder or desperately try to clear your voice. (Fun fact- I found out that I’ve developed an allergy to cats this past week :/)
Anyway, here’s me trying to make a good impression while I’m hacking up a lung. And then- uh oh- I cough and no longer have my voice. Praying that nobody would ask me a question, I quietly tried to clear my throat. Which brought on a series of small coughs that made my eyes water like crazy and probably had the whole class think I should be quarantined.
Nice first impression, right?
So, after this, I went home and made egg drop soup to soothe my poor messed up throat. Thank goodness egg drop soup is pretty quick and easy to make. It’s my new go-to on days that I feel off (or have been around a cat).
Curried Egg Drop Soup (Paleo)
1/2 tbsp avocado oil
1/3 cup chopped onions
1/4 tsp curry powder
2 cups beef/chicken/vegetable broth
2 tsp coconut aminos
Salt and pepper
Heat oil in a pot over medium-low heat and add in onions. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, crack an egg into a mug and whisk until scrambled. Set aside.
After onions are done cooking, add in the curry powder and continue to cook for 1 more minute.
Add in broth, put on high heat, and bring a boil. Once at a rapid boil, immediately turn off heat and quickly stir in the egg. Stir in the coconut aminos and then pour into a bowl. Add salt and pepper and top with chives, if desired.
