I don't know about you guys, but sometimes egg drop soup sounds so good! Maybe I've been sick or it's just really cold and some hot soup sounds yummy, but I don't feel like going out just to get it or paying a ridiculous amount by time you add in delivery charges for delivery. Plus, I try not to make Chris run out too often to get my random cravings! LOL However, the beauty of egg drop soup is it's really simple and made with things you should have on hand in your pantry and fridge :)
4 cups chicken broth
1 tbsp parsley
1/3 medium onion, sliced thinly
1/3 cup carrot slices
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbsp cornstarch
Alright, now prepare to be amazed at just how simple it is to make this..
1. Pour chicken brother into medium size pot
2. Add parsley, onion, carrot, salt and pepper
3. Bring to a boil and cook til veggies are tender (onions will look translucent)
4. Once soup is boiling and veggies tender, whisk eggs in a small seperate bowl (like you're scrambling them)
5. Slowly pour the eggs in a thin stream in circles around the pot (Squee with delight as you see the eggs cook up like I did the first time)
**if you would like to do just egg whites, its healthier and more traditional***
6. Put cornstarch in small glass and add some hot soup broth to it to desolve, then pour it into soup
7. Simmer for a few minutes til the soup start to thicken
I made the soup this weekend to go with homemade sushi rolls I made :) If you want to know where my sushi inspiration came from, it's from my best friend Jessie <3 you can see her recipe here Mama Creedon's Kitchen!!! If you have a rice cooker you can use it to prep your rice, then add the rice vinegar. For my variation I tried it with rice on the outside and I loved it! Simply spread rice completely and evenly on rough side of seaweed sheet, then flip over and put your fillings about 1 inch from bottom edge on smooth side of seaweed and continue as the recipe suggests :) These two go great together! Of course this soup would compliment many dishes or even great just on its own (but I'd double the recipe for a stand alone meal) Give it a try!
Until next time...
