Making Egg Drop Soup

So late last night I needed a snack but I didn’t want to full out cook nor eat processed crap.

Suddenly I remembered I purchased 2 cans of chicken stock to use for whatever and that I happened to have a nugget of ginger root laying about.

I tossed the can of chicken stock in a pot
1 teaspoon of soy sauce
½ teaspoon ginger juice*

*1 teaspoon of powdered ginger works just as well

Set it to simmer & tasted it. You know what this is at this point? Ramen stock. It taste JUST like the water you get when you make instant ramen. I have some raw ramen noodles here and I am totally gonna try making my own stock later.

So then add:

½ tablespoon of cornstarch
1 beaten egg poured slowly down some chopsticks.

Salt to taste.

Let the egg cook for a min and boom. Egg Drop soup easy as that.  Taste just like the stuff you get from your local take out joint.


I got this recipe from RunnyRunny99. Follow what he does. You don’t need the tomatoes or sesame oil at all.
