Green Eierstich is German specialty that is used to add flavor, visual appeal and nourishment to clear soups and broths. The basic recipe consists usually of just eggs
(Eier), salt, pepper, and either milk,
water or fresh cream. Other ingredients like spinach or Swiss chard which I used for this recipe, nutmeg, chili or herbs are optional additions. Most recipes use milk to mix with the eggs but water works just as fine though changing the taste of the final result. If prepared correctly Eierstich should for a smooth slab of egg that can be cut into decorative slices and added to clear soups and broths. A famous soup that is often served with Eierstich is the Hochzeitssuppe (Wedding soup)
