Helpful Hint
Egg yolks enrich and thicken soups, but they also add fat and cholesterol. If this is a concern, substitute 2 egg whites for every whole egg called for in a soup recipe or use 1 whole egg and substitute the egg whites for a second or third egg.

On the Menu
A light first course like Tomato Egg Drop Soup is the perfect start to any meal featuring roast meat as the main dish and a starchy side dish like potatoes. Finish with a fruit sorbet or pineapple wedges for dessert.
