Summary
Instant soups are a convenient and inexpensive meal, but they are loaded with sodium. This homemade version is easy to prepare ahead of time (make a few at a time for easy meal prepping) so you can enjoy the same convenience, but a much healthier version! This recipe calls for coconut aminos, which is a lower sodium (only 90 mg per tsp!), gluten-free substitute for soy sauce. If you're trying to cut back on sodium, coconut aminos are a great alternative to soy sauce to keep in your pantry. To make the hard-boiled egg for this recipe, try our favorite method here.
