Egg Drop Soup


  • 3 cups clear chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 scallion
  • 1 egg
  • 1 T cornstarch
  • white pepper to taste


  1. Wash and cut scallions into 1/8 [pcs]
  2. Beat egg thoroughly.
  3. Dissolve cornstarch in 2 T cold water.
  4. Heat 3 cups chicken broth and 1 cup water until boiling.
  5. Add salt and stir ____ ____
  6. Add cornstarch slowly until it thickens gradually.
  7. Add scallion and mix few times.
  8. Gently stir in beat egg.
  9. Turn off heat immediately.
  10. Serve - Let each person add white pepper to his taste.


Tips: Soup can be made with chicken or beef broth. (In absence of either, I use boullion cubes). It is important turn heat off immediately after egg is stirrd in, so that egg will float like a cloud to surface. (Scallions are fairly large so 3-4 green onions would probably be about right).

Serves 4.
