Deluxe Egg Drop Soup

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars
1

"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

Great! I added mushrooms and used Better Than Bullion Roasted Chicken Base. Adding the corn starch before the eggs worked great. Thanks!

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
