Kimchi Egg Drop Soup

For this weeks blogging marathon I'm showcasing " Soups & Salads". Today I'm sharing a healthy soup made of egg whites. Check this Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#38.
Kimchi Egg Drop Soup

Kimchi egg drop soup is packed with nutrients & proteins that we need on a daily basis. The soup tasted delicious with fermented juices of kimchi & the broken egg whites. I made it with left over cucumber kimchi I made few weeks back. You can replace this with a store bought or any home made kimchi
