I have always had a special place in my heart for Chinese food. One of the staples at many restaurants is Egg Drop Soup. Unfortunately, due to the amount of corn starch in it, it has never been keto friendly. I spent a lot of time working on this recipe for Keto Egg Drop Soup in order to get the taste and texture perfect. So Enjoy!
