Spanish Egg Drop Soup

Sara Jones, Tucson CSA

Use milder greens, like chard, spinach or baby braising
greens for this simple soup. You can add diced ham for a
heartier soup.

1-2 bunches greens, cleaned and cut into strips
2-3 cloves garlic minced
2 teaspoons olive oil
2 eggs
1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper
1 tablespoon flour
4 cups soup stock
Green onion, chopped, to garnish

In a soup pot, sauté garlic in olive oil until fragrant, add
stock and bring liquid to a boil. Mix together eggs, salt
and pepper and flour. Pour egg mixture through a
colander and into boiling broth. Stir briefly, add greens
(and ham, if using) and stir again. Cook until greens are
wilted, just a few minutes. Serve, garnished with chopped
green onion.
