Some soups are just plain simple to cook. And no, I am not talking about soup from the can. Genuine, homemade soup like Egg Drop Soup. Don't be fooled by the internet on this one. This soup is super simple.
Ingredients (one serving):
Two cups chicken stock
One teaspoon soy sauce
One well scrambled egg
One teaspoon cornstarch
One tablespoon water
Sliced green onions
Mix cornstarch and water to slurry, set aside. Bring chicken stock to boil, add soy sauce. Bring stock to a swirl by vigorously moving fork in a clockwise location. You want this to be moving, as in about to over swirl the side of the pot. With stock swirling, gently pour WELL scrambled egg slowly thru tines of fork. Stir egg strings around to keep from sticking to pot, turn off heat, add cornstarch slurry add green onions to taste. That's it. Super simple
Scaled for Likability:
There is nothing better than egg drop soup for a late night dinner/snack/stir fry not filling enough so add a soup side dish. Wait, yes there is. Egg drop soup with fried wontons. Now there is nothing better.
Egg drop soup does not keep well so only cook what you can eat. This table uses low sodium chicken bouillon cubes for its stock preference. Use what you like best. Enjoy!
