Egg drop soup is delicious and can be made easily at home. This version is vegetarian, but it can be made using chicken stock if you're into that kind of thing.

Step 1: You'll Need. . .

  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 2 green onions, sliced thin (more can be used if desired)
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground ginger
  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Sauce pot
<p>I sent this to my Sister! She's A Vegetarian! I have not made this; yet!</p>
<p>Hope she enjoys it!</p>
I just made this, except I had to substitute flour for cornstarch. I'll probably choose to use less ginger next time but this was really good, thank you for the instructions. :)
So glad you enjoyed it!
When i tried this it cooked the egg too fast and made it liek scrambled eggs. Any tips?
Egg drop soup usually has bits of egg (similar to scrambled egg) in the broth. You might try letting it cool a little before adding the egg if you prefer a different consistency.
ok, thanks. I'm just used to it like the chinese restaurant's version. But they make theirs with chicken broth.
