Chinese Egg Drop Soup

Chinese Egg Drop Soup

Make the restaurant-style Chinese egg drop soup with the minimum ingredients, within 15 minutes, and without any fuss.

Cooking egg drop soup only takes 15 minutes, but you get a hearty soup that tastes way better than the one in Chinese restaurants.
You don’t need to add tons of spices like star anise and cloves because it overpowers the delicate egg flavor. I was astounded to see some egg drop soup recipes call for 6 to 7 spices. It’s unimaginable. We’re cooking a quick side dish here, not Vietnamese pho.

You only need some fresh green onions and ginger. That’s it. They bring out the sweetness of the egg without the taste being overwhelming.

  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 3 green onions , chopped, white and green parts separated
  • 1 slice ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon white pepper powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt (or to taste)
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/8 teaspoon turmeric powder , for the yellow color (Optional)
  • 4 large eggs , beaten
  • 2 teaspoons sesame oil
