WHAT IS EGG DROP SOUP?
To give you the easy answer to that question Egg Drop Soup is a Chinese soup of  beaten eggs cooked in chicken broth. Plain and simple. While there are variations of the recipe, traditionally salt, pepper and green onions are added to the mixture. It is a plain and simple soup, but with such comforting flavor.

HOW DO YOU MAKE EGG DROP SOUP?
This recipe is literally one of the easiest soup recipes around. It starts with a base of basic chicken broth in which you add some ginger and soy to and heat up. Then you add in a cornstarch and water mixture (not necessary if you like more watery soup) to give it a little more texture. 

Then comes the fun part, adding the eggs. You beat a few eggs in a bowl and slowly drizzle them into the hot broth mixture, ONLY stirring one direction so the eggs cook and make little ribbons. Then you add some green onions and salt and pepper. Some people add corn, but I’ve never had corn in mine so I left it out.

IS EGG DROP SOUP GOOD OR BAD FOR YOU?
Now there is the key question everyone wants to know. While a traditional cup of Egg Drop Soup only contains around 60-10 calories, it doesn’t provide much vitamins or minerals except vitamin C! 

If you’re looking for an easy, quick and comforting soup this Egg Drop Soup recipe is all you’ll need. It reminds me of the Chinese version of Chicken Noodles Soup and this is one soup that I would want to eat on days when I’m cold, or sick or tired!
