Deluxe Egg Drop Soup

Rated as 3.9 out of 5 Stars

"Not satisfied with many of the egg drop soup recipes I have come across here and elsewhere, I decided to try coming up with my own. It's not the prettiest looking soup around, but it is closer in taste and substance to what I was looking for. I may add some sweet corn next time I make it to add a little sweetness to it."

  1. Heat 3 1/4 cups chicken broth in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add carrots, ginger, and white parts of green onion; bring soup to a boil.
  2. Whisk remaining 3/4 cup broth and cornstarch together in a bowl until dissolved.
  3. Stir cabbage and green parts of green onion into the soup. Drop beaten egg, a spoonful at a time, into soup, stirring after each addition to prevent clumping. Stir cornstarch mixture into soup and season with salt and pepper. Stir soup until cornstarch thickens the soup, about 2 minutes.

Tastes good but too much stuff in it for me. I would rather have the simpler version.

I used spinach instead of cabbage because I had it on hand, tastes wonderful.

I even chopped up two celery sticks and added them it was great will definitely be making this again

I've made this twice. The first time I forgot to pick up the ginger at the grocery store, but it was still really good! This time I made it with the ginger, followed the recipe & the ginger was ...

I added a little fish sauce and grated garlic - yummy!

Came out really bland, had to add lots of salt.

I did not have ginger but without it was great

Very bland, although that may have been the broth. Will add more carrots, water chestnuts, and mini corn next time, as well as experiment with different broths.
