Kale Stracciatella

This quick and easy soup is one you can serve to any special guest. I like serving this as a starter to our annual Italian Themed Feast.

10 cups good quality GF chicken broth
1/4 cup loosely packed chopped fresh Italian flat leaf parsley
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
4 eggs
2 cups chopped kale

Pour the broth in a large pot and toss in the chopped parsley; bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
In the meantime, whisk together the basil, Parmesan cheese and eggs.
Stir the broth in one circular motion and once you have a slight circular tunnel in the middle of the broth, stir in a bit of the egg mixture at a time until all used up.
Add the Kale and continue to cook for a couple of minutes.
Remove from heat, cover and let sit for 5 minutes.
Ladle into bowls and Enjoy!

  1. I love stracciatella but never made it with kale, so this was a very pleasant new experience. Instead of chicken stock I used home made pheasant stock which I wanted to use up, but I don't think that really makes such a huge difference. Also I had to use frozen kale which I thawed before adding to the soup. I'll definitely make it again this way! Thanks for sharing. made for FYC game.

    1. I'm so glad you enjoyed this, thx for the great review.

  2. We loved this soup! What was really wonderful was the egg with cheese - I would never have thought of that! We used kale from our garden and some homemade chicken broth. Absolutely delicious! Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe!
