How To Make quick & easy egg drop soup

  • 1
    Dissolve Better Than Bouillon in room temperature water in medium saucepan. Add cornstarch, ginger and garlic powder, whisking to combine.
  • 2
    Cook over medium heat to a low boil. Once boiling, cook for 1-2 minutes. Turn down burner to a low simmer. Pour beaten eggs into broth VERY SLOWLY while you stir in a large, slow circular motion. You don't want to stir too fast or the eggs will break up into tiny pieces. You're going for nice, long ribbons of egg.

    Once the eggs have been added, turn off burner. Add freshly ground pepper and check salt to taste. Then add toasted sesame oil and 1 tsp. of parsley, if using. Garnish with diagonally cut green onions, if desired.
