With just a few basic ingredients and a little practice, you can easily master the art of creating this savory and satisfying soup right in the comfort of your own kitchen.
To embark on your journey of mastering the art of egg drop soup, gather the following ingredients:
– 4 cups of chicken or vegetable broth
– 2 tablespoons of cornstarch

– A pinch of salt and pepper
– Optional garnish: thinly sliced green onions
Now that we have all the necessary ingredients, let’s dive into the step-by-step recipe:
1. In a small bowl, whisk together the cornstarch and water until the cornstarch is fully dissolved. This mixture will act as a thickening agent for the soup.
2. In a medium-sized pot, bring the chicken or vegetable broth to a gentle boil over medium heat. While waiting for it to boil, take a moment to beat the eggs in a separate bowl.
3. Once the broth is boiling, slowly pour the cornstarch mixture into the pot while stirring continuously. This will help thicken the soup and give it a smooth texture.
4. Reduce the heat to low and pour the beaten eggs into the simmering soup in a slow and steady stream. Stir the soup gently in one direction to create those desirable egg ribbons.
5. Add the soy sauce, toasted sesame oil, salt, and pepper to the soup. Stir to combine all the flavors, and let it simmer for an additional 1-2 minutes to ensure everything is well incorporated.
6. Serve the egg drop soup hot in individual bowls. For an added touch, garnish with thinly sliced green onions to enhance the presentation and taste.
