  • 4 cups chicken stock or low-sodium broth
  • 2 medium carrots, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup thawed frozen peas
  • 3 ounces curly spinach (4 cups)

How to make this recipe

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a boil. Add the carrots and peas and cook over moderate heat until just tender, about 3 minutes. Add the spinach and cook until wilted, 1 minute. In a small bowl, beat the eggs with the 2 tablespoons of cheese. Slowly drizzle the egg mixture into the soup and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until ribbons form, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle the soup into bowls, drizzle with olive oil and garnish with grated cheese. Serve with crusty bread.
