Quick Tomato Noodle Soup with Egg Yolk

Want a warming and filling breakfast on bleak Winter morning? This soup comes together in less than 15 minutes from pantry ingredients. Egg yolks poached in the hot stock adds a bright note of nutrition.

2 T tomato paste
1 rib celery + leaves, cubed and chopped
1 rib bok choy + greens, cubed and chopped
1 qt water
1 pkg Knorr's Tomato Noodle Soup Mix
2 or more large eggs 
2 oz cooked chicken or turkey, chopped (optional)

Combine the celery and bok choy in a bowl. Microwave covered on high for 60 seconds. Put the tomato paste and the water into a two-quart saucepan, cover and bring to a boil. Stir in the vegetables and the soup mix, and cook uncovered at a fast simmer. While the soup is cooking, carefully crack two eggs into bowl, taking care not to damage the yolks. After 8 minutes, take the soup off heat, add the meat if desired and, with a spoon, lift each yolk into the hot stock. Whip the egg whites until frothy and spoon onto the soup. Cover and let sit 5 minutes before serving. Divide into bowls, placing a yolk in each. Serves 2 to 4.
