This was a very good recipe, particularly considering how few ingredients are in it! I used one 32 oz. container of chicken broth and only 1 T of soy sauce. I also did not add water to the beaten eggs and used dried chives instead of green onions. To get more traditional egg consistency, stir soup gently and drizzle egg into soup. After a few seconds, draw a spoon through soup and the egg will swirl. Read More

Made it almost exactly as written however instead of green onions I used a couple shakes of minced onion garlic powder and ground ginger. It was marvelous!:) Read More

Oh my goodness! This was delicious :) I love egg drop soup, and this tasted almost exactly like the stuff you can get in a restaurant. I'd suggest using a wide-pronged fork to stir the egg if you like bigger chunks of egg in your soup. Read More

Delicious recipe! I only use about 30 oz of the chicken broth to help thicken it up and I also use the low sodium version and it's still wonderful! Sometimes I also add frozen corn to help beef it up and it tastes great. Read More

Really easy which is what I needed while I'm ill. I started with homemade chicken broth and went from there. Next time I make this I'll increase the cornstarch and decrease the soy sauce by half (it tasted way too much like soy sauce). Thanks for the recipe!! Read More

I'm giving it five stars not just because it tasted wonderful, but because it was so easy AND my very picky 5 year old loved it! I followed the advice of a few previous reviewers and made the following tweaks: added 1/8t ground ginger, 1/4t garlic powder and 1t dried onion flakes (because I didn't have any green onions on hand), and only added a scant tablespoon of water instead of two to the egg, then swirled it gently once I added it to the broth. It smelled heavenly, looked like something I'd picked up from our favorite Chinese restaurant, and could not have taken more than 10 minutes to make. Read More

tasted just like resaraunt style!! I made healthy modifications by using low sodium chicken broth, omitted the sugar and cornstarch. I also added 2 more egg whites and 1/2 package extra firm tofu for more protien. My dad thought I picked up chinese!! Read More
