This is a classic Bulgarian recipe for spinach egg drop soup. Loaded with flavor, nutritious and delicious.This recipe was first posted on the blog back in 2013. Since I make it pretty often, I decided to update the photos.

Growing up, I was not the biggest fan of spinach.

I mean, I could eat it, but I’d much rather have something else. I used to like this soup though, it tasted great when hot, drizzled with some lemon juice.

Things are different now and you may notice that I use spinach in many recipes, like One Pan Creamy Tomato Chicken Spinach Pasta, Zucchini Mushroom Risotto, Spinach and Havarti Pizza, One Pan Chicken and Rice and many salads.

Spinach is low carb and low in cholesterol, rich in protein, fiber, vitamins and iron. It is a green superfood. I love using it in smoothies, too.

You may have heard or even tried Asian (Chinese) Egg Drop Soup, Italian (Stracsiatella) Egg Drop soup, Spinach And Parmesan, Egg Drop Meatball Soup, but not many of you may have had Bulgarian Egg Drop Soup.

This soup is very simple to make and very delicious.

Great for spring and summer, but also perfect for a cold winter day. Great for veggie lovers, no meatballs here. Very low in calories and also filling.

To make this spinach egg drop soup, I first sauteed spinach and garlic, then add carrots and tomato sauce. Add water and bullion (I use an European seasoning called Vegeta, instead of bullion and chicken stock), and simmer for 20-30 minutes.

For the egg drop, I beat whole eggs with some water and slowly add it to the hot soup, whisking constantly.

Garnish with fresh chopped parsley, green onions and serve with a lemon wedge.

  1. I love the sound of spinach egg drop soup! So creative, Mira! I’m always looking for new ways to eat spinach, so this is perfect for me because I eat soup almost weekly. I love how pretty this looks! Pinned!

  2. Egg drop soup is one of my favorites and I’m loving all the veggies. Can’t wait to try this.

  3. I have never made egg drop soup, and this one looks so comfy and delicious, Mira. Loved that added spinach here. I am sure it tastes fantastic.

  4. Thank you for this recipe. I have been battling with GI distress and this simple veggie soup has truly been a God send. This is the second time I’ve made it and this time I substituted half bone broth to pump up the protein value a little.
