  • 1 medium onion(s) diced
  • 2 medium celery stalk(s) diced (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon(s) coconut oil
  • 8 cup(s) chicken broth or well-salted water
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) ginger fresh and grated
  • 1 teaspoon(s) coconut aminos
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon(s) sea salt (optional)
  • 3 tablespoon(s) arrowroot powder
  • 3 tablespoon(s) water
  • 6 large egg(s)


  1. Melt coconut oil in a large pot over medium heat.

  4. Mix arrowroot powder with water until smooth. Pour into soup and continue to cook until thickened (about 10 minutes).
