Egg Drop Soup

untitled-design-2

We don’t know about y’all… but we love egg drop soup. We get it every time it is an option on the menu, and this recipe was the best egg drop soup we have ever had. That’s saying a lot. So even if you aren’t an egg drop soup person, you should give this a whirl. (Lol! That was a pun which you will understand it once you read the recipe.)

Plus, this will pair perfectly with our other Asian themed Post Grad Meals! Date Night anyone?

P.S. This is an awesome soup for when you or a loved one are feeling sick. Chicken Noodle Soup can get old after a while so liven things up with some Egg Drop Soup! Although… you should make sure that said person actually likes Egg Drop Soup and isn’t particularly nauseous because that’s probably not a good mix.

This recipe was modified from one at Gimme Some Oven, which is an awesome food blog. Lots of our recipes are inspired by them! You should check it out.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 cups Chicken Broth
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Egg Whites (optional)
  • 1 tsp Ginger
  • 2 tbsp Corn Starch
  • 1/4 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Sesame Oil
  • 3 Green Onions sliced thin (optional)
  • Salt and Pepper (to taste)

* Note: TSP is TEAspoon which is a smaller measurement and TBSP is TABLEspoon which is a larger measurement. Look closely at measurements because you don’t want to mix these up.

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Mix together broth, corn starch, garlic powder, and ginger. Make sure to do this at or below ROOM temperature or else the corn starch will clump up and it’s kinda gross…
  2. In a medium saucepan, bring mixture to a boil.
  3. While the mixture is heating up, whisk the eggs and egg whites in a measuring cup. (We used  a measuring cup bc it makes pouring the eggs much easier.)
  4. Once the mixture is boiling, remove it from the heat.
  5. Grab your whisk (or fork if you don’t have one) and begin SLOWLY stirring the piping hot mixture. While you are stirring, slowly pour the eggs into the broth mixture. (Note: you will be stirring and pouring at the same time. Make sure you are doing both of these very slowly because otherwise the egg ribbons will look wonky. It’s not that hard… you can do it!)
  6. Once you have made your beautiful egg ribbons, stir in the sesame oil and green onions.
  7. Add salt and pepper to taste and BAM! You got yourself some soup!

Now, you can’t tell us that this isn’t the best egg drop soup you’ve ever had. It’s so easy, and the swirly thing makes you feel like a legit chef, right? It was an all around great experience for us and we hope that it is for you too. If you make this recipe, please send us a picture and let us know what you thought! It’s the best feeling when people tell us that they actually made a Post Grad Meal. 👏🏼

Eat up!
