Simple & Delicious Egg Drop Soup
Do you have a dish that is so simple but just always hits the spot? That's exactly what this soup is - and it also happens to be packed with iron! This dish comes together in 15 minutes and will be your new go-to lazy meal.
- 4 cups water
- Ginger and scallion slices
- Bouillon cube or paste
- 2-3 eggs
- 2 tbsp corn starch
- Pinch of turmeric
- White pepper and salt
- Sesame oil
🥣 Bring 4 cups of water to boil. Add a few slices of fresh ginger and scallions as the water starts to heat up. Also stir in a bouillon cube or paste. Cover with lid.
🥣 Once the liquid is boiling, add in your Lucky Iron Fish or Leaf. No need to add any extra acidity here since there is already a broth base added. Cover with lid and allow it all to boil together for 10 minutes.
🥣 In the meantime, whisk 2-3 eggs in a bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, add 2 tbsp of corn starch, a pinch of turmeric, some white pepper and salt.
🥣 After 10 minutes of boiling, scoop out the ginger, scallions and the Fish or Leaf from the iron-enriched broth. Turn heat low and continue simmering.
🥣 To the cornstarch mixture, add just enough water to cover it. Whisk it and pour the slurry into the pot. Stir until there are no lumps and you see the liquid start to thicken a bit.
🥣 Now add in the whisked eggs in a nice drizzle. You will see it starts to firm up in a few seconds. This is when you start stirring very gently to make sure heat is evenly distributed and the eggs cook evenly. Once you achieve the silky texture, turn heat off.
Within minutes the soup is now ready!
Add extra salt if needed. Serve with a drizzle of sesame oil.
