I have friends who travel all over the world and they always bring back something interesting for me to try and make. My dear friend, Holly, came home from teaching English in China and taught me this simple recipe that is pretty much their chicken noodle soup.

How to Make Easy Egg Drop soup

Step-by-Step

  1. Combine the broth, water, and salt in a large sauce pan and put on stove at medium heat.
  2. Add garlic powder, ginger, and chives. In a separate bowl, mix cornstarch and about 1/3-1/2 cup of water and set aside.
  3. When the broth is just starting to boil, add the green onions and lower the heat by a few degrees (you don't want it to reach full boiling).
  4. In a large cup or cereal bowl, crack the eggs and break all the yolks with a fork or whisk, then drop the contents into the broth.
  5. stir broth a little vigorously so the eggs don't clump together.
  6. Remember that cornstarch mixture we set aside? Mix it a bit if the starch separated from the water then add that to the broth and stir for about 2-3 min.
  7. Let it simmer until it's a light cloudy golden yellow colour, then separate and serve. Enjoy!
