Egg Drop Soup

Submitted by: LADYLOOMI

Introduction

I'm currently sick and needed a quick and easy soup to make that wasn't canned because the canned soups seem too heavy for me to finish. I'm currently sick and needed a quick and easy soup to make that wasn't canned because the canned soups seem too heavy for me to finish.

    i love how everyone seems to think that asian cooking would be really hard when most recipes that i know of from my childhood were 10 ingredients max.

    I'm sorry but this made me hate egg drop soup now. - 4/11/10

  • Usually I only make egg-drop when I've got a bad sore throat, and then I only use soft veggies and I beat the eggs with about 1/2 olive oil before I pour the liquid egg into the heating soup--closer to the way they do it in restaurants. - 2/20/10

    Reply from LADYLOOMI (3/4/10)
    why would you add the oil to the egg?
