For those who follow a vegetarian diet, vegetable stock can be substituted for chicken stock.


  • 6 Cups low-sodium chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1/2 Cup thinly sliced scallions
  • 1/4 Cup fresh baby spinach or baby arugula
  • 4 shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, wiped clean and thinly sliced
  • 1 Teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/8 Teaspoon finely ground white pepper
  • 2 large Eggland's Best eggs, lightly beaten


In a medium saucepan, bring the stock to a simmer.

Add 6 tablespoons of scallions, the spinach (or arugula), mushrooms, soy sauce and white pepper.

Return to a low simmer and cook for three minutes.

Stirring with a fork, gradually add the eggs in a slow steady stream.

Cook until the eggs are set, stirring to create shreds or ribbons of the eggs, one minute.

Remove saucepan from the heat.

Ladle soup into bowls, garnish with remaining scallions.

Season with salt to taste and serve immediately.
