I played around a bit and came to the following conclusions: 1) 2 cups chicken broth (plain) to one egg 2) add about two teaspoons of soy sauce 3) forget the peas 4) green onion is nice if you have it An Easter-egg blower makes it easy to add the egg slowly to the boiling broth. Read More

This recipe was good. I probably changed it so much it is a whole new recipe. I used 2 cans (14 ounces each) of chicken broth 1/8 of a teaspoon sesame oil 1 cup of peas and carrots instead of just peas and 2 eggs. The recipe as written is 4 stars as made 5. Read More

I was suprised at how good this was because its SO easy!. I did cut the broth in half though. I boiled 2 cups of water tossed in a knorr's chicken bouillon cube then when that dissolved I slowly added the egg. I think 1 egg for 2 cups of broth was perfect for me. I skipped the peas and the green onion (because we are out) I dont think it needs the peas but would be even better with the green onion. After cooking I just added a dash of white pepper and that was it. My husband did not want to try it at first because he has tried the egg drop soup at chinese restuarants before and never liked it. When he tried this he didn't want to stop eating it! My 2 year old also really liked it. Thank you for this recipe I think I will be making it a lot. Read More

I really enjoyed this. It was simple quick and tasty. The only difference I made was to use 1c. frozen mixed veggies. (This was because I didn't have just peas frozen and didn't want to use canned peas and then forgot to look back at the recipe to verify adding the right amount.:P) The veggies give the soup a mild sweetness to it to accent the saltiness of the broth.
