Recipe type: Soups
Cuisine: 4 Season
Serves: 6
  • 2 quarts homemade chicken stock
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 4 large organic eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 bunch scallions, sliced, whites and greens divided
  • Pinch of freshly grated nutmeg
  • 3 cups chopped arugula, any tough stems removed
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  1. Combine broth, chickpeas, scallion whites and nutmeg in a Dutch oven; and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, reduce to medium-low heat to simmer.
  2. While stirring the soup constantly, slowly whisk in eggs; cook for 2 minutes. Eggs will begin to look like feathery strands once fully cooked.
  3. Stir in ⅓ of a cup of Parmesan and the arugula and cook until arugula is wilted, about 1 minute. Turn the heat off completely and stir in the scallion greens and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Ladle into bowls and top with more Parmesan.
