Egg Drop Soup

I made this simple soup that many Chinese Restaurants serve. Several recipes were very similar online so I really don’t know who to credit this recipe to. Our local restaurants call this soup Egg Flower Soup and another name is Egg Drop Soup.


4 cups prepared chicken broth
2 Tablespoons chicken stock reserved from the 4 cups
1 Tablespoon cornstarch
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon fresh grated ginger
2 eggs lightly beaten
2 green onions chopped
Salt and white pepper to taste

Make a slurry of the 2 Tablespoons broth and 1 Tablespoon cornstarch, set aside.
Pour the remaining broth into a medium sized pot.
Add the soy sauce and grated ginger to the broth.
Bring the broth to a boil.
Add the slurry slowly and stir to incorporate it all until the broth thickens for at least 2 minutes.
While the broth is boiling and the slurry thickens the broth add the beaten eggs slowly in a stream while stirring the broth in one direction.
Keep stirring and adding the egg as it becomes feathery in the broth.
After the beaten eggs are added turn off the heat.
Taste and see if you need added salt or white pepper.
Add the chopped green onions and serve.
Serves 4 people.

This was a fun soup to make.

Hope you all have a good Friday. We are going to a special Valentine early celebration at our church this evening. We will be solving a murder mystery all decked out in Roaring 20’s attire. Depending on the angles of the photos of me and Dear and if they show my good side I will be sharing photos from our evening. Vanity, vanity…

  1. Mmmm. I love egg flower soup! Thank you for sharing your recipe for it 🙂 Your event tonight sounds like a lot of fun.

  2. Oh yum! I remember my Mom making a Hungarian version of egg drop soup. She would pierce the egg on both ends and then leaning over the pot of soup blow in one hole while stirring the soup and the egg drizzled out the other hole.
