seasoned chicken broth
frozen green peas
Quick and simple, but still has that restaurant quality.
I played around a bit and came to the following conclusions:
1) 2 cups chicken broth (plain) to one egg
2) add about two teaspoons of soy sauce
3) forget the peas
4) green onion is nice if you have it
An Easter-egg blower makes it easy to add the egg slowly to the boiling broth.
AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME! This is definately a keeper. Very good in very little time. You dont have to even have the peas. Just the broth and the egg is delicious.
I loved it! Fast and easy to make I added tariaki sauce about 2 T and a chopped up mushroom this ones a keeper.
This recipe was good. I probably changed it so much it is a whole new recipe. I used 2 cans (14 ounces each) of chicken broth, 1/8 of a teaspoon sesame oil, 1 cup of peas and carrots instead of just peas, and 2 eggs. The recipe as written is 4 stars, as made 5.
I was suprised at how good this was because its SO easy!. I did cut the broth in half though. I boiled 2 cups of water, tossed in a knorr's chicken bouillon cube then when that dissolved I slowly added the egg. I think 1 egg for 2 cups of broth was perfect for me. I skipped the peas and the green onion (because we are out) I dont think it needs the peas but would be even better with the green onion. After cooking I just added a dash of white pepper and that was it. My husband did not want to try it at first because he has tried the egg drop soup at chinese restuarants before and never liked it. When he tried this, he didn't want to stop eating it! My 2 year old also really liked it. Thank you for this recipe, I think I will be making it a lot.
This is a great easy soup to make. It's a great soup to make when you are sick and has ingredients I always have in it so no need to make a special trip to the store. Perfect cold/flu soup.
This was a very easy, very good soup. I used two eggs and liked that very much. I didn't have the green onion, but wish I did; I will next time.
