We didn't have a large grocery store or Walmart in our town. So every week or two, we would make the trip to HEB in a neighboring town, or if Wal-mart would do, we would take the ferry to a slightly closer town. My brothers and I preferred taking the ferry which, also meant we could go to our favorite chinese restaurant. (Or pizza hut- depending on our mood...)
Egg drop soup is really easy to make, it's basically 2 ingredients. Eggs and broth, plus a few flavor enhancers. Looks yummy doesn't it?
Would you like to give it a try? Grab your ingredients, and lets give it a whirl!
(I recommend Safest Choice™ pasteurized eggs, that way you don't have to worry about the threat of salmonella in undercooked eggs. Want to try these eggs? Get a coupon here.)
Egg Drop Soup Recipe
- 4 cups chicken broth
- 1 tbs of cornstarch
- 4 egg whites, lightly beaten (You could use the entire egg, but it will make the soup cloudy)
- 1/4 teaspoon white or black pepper
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger
- Salt to taste
- A few drops of sesame oil (optional)
- 1 -2 green onions, minced (optional)
- Handful of fried wontons (optional) (I found these over with the salad toppings in the produce area)
- In medium saucepan, bring the chicken broth to a boil over med- high heat.
- While the broth is heating, mix the cornstarch and a bit of water until smooth and add to the broth.
- Once the broth has come to a boil, add the white pepper, ginger, salt, and the sesame oil if using. Reduce heat and simmer for about another minute or two.
- Remove broth from heat and stir with whisk.
- Pour lightly beaten egg whites into the broth slowly, through the tines of a fork and slowly stir the broth to form the egg ribbons. I tried to make a video of how I add the egg to the broth. I obviously cannot talk, stir and think at the same time, so I opted to turn off my voice and add speech bubbles. You can see it here.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
