Chinese Egg Drop Soup

(1 Votes)
4 cups
10 Min

This soup is the way to go if you're looking to fool your guests into thinking you've gotten this delicious Chinese Egg Drop Soup right from the kitchen of your favorite Chinese restaurant! This soup is delish and it tastes so authentic you'll have everyone tricked!

What You'll Need:
  • 2 (14-1/2-ounce) cans chicken broth
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup diced water chestnuts
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh snow pea pods
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup bean sprouts (optional)
What To Do:
  1. Bring chicken broth to a boil in a large saucepan. Gradually drizzle beaten eggs into soup, stirring well.
  2. Stir in mushrooms and remaining ingredients, including bean sprouts, if desired; reduce heat to low, and cook until thoroughly heated.

Here's my quick version of the trademark soup many Chinese restaurants serve. The trick to getting the lacy strands of egg is to drizzle the beaten eggs into the hot broth in a thin stream, stirring the soup constantly.
