Homemade Egg Drop Soup

Homemade Egg Drop Soup is a fairly simple and yummy recipe to add to your dinner menu. We like to eat it with homemade American-Chinese cuisine as an appetizer. The use of both chicken broth and chicken bouillon gives the soup broth extra flavor; an additional cup of water is added to dilute the saltiness. This soup has so many great flavors in it, between the green onion, ginger, and sesame oil. The white pepper adds some heat, so if you are not fond of spicy food, you may want to reduce the amount used. I prefer to use a fork to drizzle the egg into the broth, but you can use what ever method you feel comfortable with to achieve the egg “ribbons” in the soup. The soup takes a total of about 10 minutes to prepare from start-to-finish, so it is the perfect addition to the menu if you are looking for something fast and easy that will be sure to satisfy.  From the Monster Foodies to you—love what you eat and enjoy!
