Asparagus and Egg Soup with Bone Broth

This asparagus and egg soup recipe reminds me of my mums crab and asparagus soup less the crab. It's light and delicate with the soft broken egg running through the soup. Using bone broth as the base, it makes a wonderfully simple and nutritious meal or starter.

With only three main ingredients consisting of bone broth, asparagus and egg, you are packing in some gut healing gelatin, vegetables, protein and a whole bunch of vitamins and minerals in one bowl. It's one of the cheapest superfoods you could be eating.

If you don't have any bone broth ready, you can take a look at my bone broth - 3 ways recipe here and choose the stove top, pressure cooker or slow cooker version.
