A family favorite when we're sick. Garnish with parsley flakes and serve with soy sauce. Better than chicken soup!

This is the easiest egg drop soup I've made and it's good! I used a ratio of one can of chicken broth and 2 eggs to make it a little more filling. Green onion instead of minced was nice because it added color along with the taste. And I shook in a few drops of hot pepper sauce at the end along with the soy sauce. To make nicely shaped egg "shreds" in the soup, stir the broth in ONE direction. Slowly add the egg while stirring in that same direction. Read More

Even though pretty good...I have had and made better. I love dried onion but I do believe it does not belong in this soup. And to get the egg right you should let it drizzle off a fork instead of just stirring it in. I think I'll pass on making this one again...but thanks..... Read More

This is a great recipe! The broth was a little salty because of the cubes so next time I will add another cup of water. Didn't have corn starch so I used flour - and the chunks of flour that gathered made little yummy dumplings. VERY VERY EASY!!!!!!!!!!! Read More

This recipe was easy and delicious. I would find soya sauce too powerful for this dish... so throwing in some green onions and ginger instead did the trick. The second time I made it I added mushrooms which was a good complimentary texture to the egg. Read More
