Michelle's Story

Probably one of my most favorite soups of all time. Which is weird for me seeing as I completely hate eggs haha but this was my first try at making it home made and it actually turned out really amazing!!


5 c
chicken stock
1/4 tsp
ground ginger
1 clove
1 tsp
soy sauce
1/2 tsp
pure sesame oil
white pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

Bring the 5 cups of chicken broth to a boil
add in the ginger, garlic, cornstarch, soy sauce, white pepper and sesame oil. let is boil lightly for 3 minutes to let the flavors infuse and thicken a little
whisk the eggs together thoroughly in a bowl. Slowly drip the whisked eggs into the soup. A good trick is to pour it through the prongs of a fork to get the ribbon effect.
let it simmer for about a minute to make sure the eggs are cooked completely. try not to stir it too much so you don't break up the eggs. Take off the heat and serve!

Silly me! It is 1 tablespoon! All the recipes I looked through before combining them and making it myself said to just put the tablespoon of cornstarch into the boiling water but i mixed mine with some cold water first to make sure it got completely dissolved! Hope that helps :) Sorry for the confusion Millie! And Becky let me know later today how you liked it :)
