Egg Drop Soup

I’ve recently had sore… Whatever, I’m not quite sure what. It’s at the little depression where your collarbone meets. It hurt like hell last night and my boyfriend recommended drinking tea. That helped, so I decided that tonight would be the perfect night to make egg drop soup! I used this Easy Egg Drop Soup recipe!

When I opened up the recipe, though, I found right away that I got the wrong sized can of chicken broth. My can was 10 ounces- already a problem. I decided to use the recipe as a list of what I needed and created my own egg drop soup! It tasted fantastic.
Egg Drop Soup
One serving
  • 1 can (approx. 10.5oz) Campbell’s Chicken Broth
  • 1 bunch green onions
  • 2 teaspoons+ a few dashes of soy sauce (I used Kroger’s low sodium soy sauce)
  • 1/4 teaspoon+four or five pinches of white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon+2 pinches of cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons cold water
  • An egg
  • 2 teaspoons cold water
  • A small pot
  • A bowl
  • A whisk or fork to mix everything together
  • Measuring cups
  1. Chop up the green onions and open your can of Campbell’s Chicken Broth. Pour both into a small pan and heat on medium. Bring that to a boil.
  2. Mix together the soy sauce, sugar, cornstarch, and 2 tablespoons of water in a bowl until smooth. Mix into the pot and heat that up for 1-2 minutes. It’ll start bubbling again. Don’t worry about it.
  3. Crack an egg into a bowl and add the 2 teaspoons of cold water. Mix together, then pour into soup. Use a fork to mix up the egg. Leave it for 2 minutes, or until the egg is cooked. Pour into a bowl and eat while hot!
This had a strong hint of soy sauce at the beginning, but as I drank more, the soy sauce taste went away. If it tastes too strong because of the soy sauce, add more cornstarch, sugar, and/or water. It’ll take care of the problem.
The soup really took care of my throat. It doesn’t hurt as badly as it did this morning. I still feel it when I swallow normally or swallow water, but it’s definitely not a distracting pain. I really wonder what it could be… I’m thinking it’s a cold. But if this doesn’t get any better by tomorrow, I’m going to set an appointment with the student health clinic to check it out. I really hope it’s just a cold.
