Italy, oh Italy!
The land of pasta, pizza, and red wine!

Doesn’t seem to be the best place to be for someone on the ketogenic diet, right?
Well, the German kitchen also isn’t known for it’s suitability for the low carb diet, but it still contains a few gems like this Low Carb German Leek & Cheese Soup!

This low carb egg drop soup called “Stracciatella alla romana” is Italys’ gift for anyone who is on the ketogenic diet and can get excited about an easy soup recipe that takes only 15 minutes.

Keto "Stracciatella" Italian Egg Drop Soup

“Stracciatella alla romana” is traditionally served at the start of Easter lunches and may have originated as early as the 15th century (Thank you Wikipedia!).
Something that’s been around this long must be pretty great.

The soup is usually served with white bread but we all know we’re going to skip that.
Because of its’ high volume and high protein content, it’s pretty filling even though it doesn’t contain a lot of calories!

So it may not be the best meal to choose if you practice OMAD (One meal a day) but everyone else who wants a quick and easy meal without a lot of hassle will have a blast with this recipe!
