If you are in the mood for Asian and do not feel like ordering take out why not make it at home? This is a fun recipe for the whole family to make together. I bet you never realized how easy egg drop soup was before?
4 cups chicken broth or stock
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 green onions, minced
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
Salt to taste
A few drops of sesame oil (optional)
1. In a wok or saucepan, bring the 4 cups of chicken broth to a boil. Add the white pepper and salt, and the sesame oil if using. Cook for about another minute.
Very slowly pour in the eggs in a steady stream. To make shreds, stir the egg rapidly in a clockwise direction for one minute. To make thin streams or ribbons, gently stir the eggs in a clockwise direction until they form. Garnish with green onion and serve.
