Egg Drop Soup

This is one of my favorite EASY soups that provides a healthy dose of protein as well as greens (two of the nutritional components I think we need to get more of our in modern diets).

-2 Quarts chicken stock
-4 eggs
-sea salt and pepper
-2 TBSP finely chopped parsley (optional)
-1 cup greens of choice (swiss chard, kale, or spinach)
-4 TBSP finely shredded Parmesan cheese (optional)

Bring stock to a boil and skim.  Meanwhile whisk eggs.  While stock is boiling vigorously, add the greens cook for 5 minutes then add eggs in a thin stream, all the while beating the soup with a whisk.  Season to taste.  Serve into bowls and add cheese and/or parsley to taste!

(Serves 6)
