I always stock Eggs. When I need to make a soup quickly, this soup is always an option. As you can read in the ‘Method’ below, it is super easy and can be made in a few minutes. You can add other ingredients such as Wakame and Asian Mushrooms. But this soup is comforting and delicious as it is with just 1 Egg.
2 cups Chicken Stock *OR 2 cups Water & 2 teaspoons Asian Chicken Bouillon Powder
1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
1 tablespoon (3 teaspoons) Soy Sauce
Salt & White Pepper
1 tablespoon Potato Starch OR Corn Starch *mixed with 1 tablespoon Water
1 Egg *whisked
1 Spring Onion *finely chopped
Toasted Sesame Seeds
- Place Chicken Stock, Sesame Oil, Soy Sauce in a saucepan, and bring to the boil. Add Salt & White Pepper to taste. *Note: The amount of Salt depends on the saltiness of the Stock.
- Add Potato Starch mixture to the boiling soup as you stir. Once the soup is thickened, add whisked Egg slowly in a circular motion into the soup.
- Add some finely chopped Spring Onion and Toasted Sesame Seeds, and enjoy.
Yummy for tired days, similar to tomato egg drop soup. Just add wedged/ tomato chunks in the beginning (omit soy sauce and sesame oil) . The rest is the same. Potato starched water is optional. And lastly add chopped spring onion and sesame oil, give one – two stir and then turn off heat. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seed ( optional).
Thank you for your comment. Everyone has their favourite simple soup. I don’t add Tomato to this soup, but I often add Wakame. You are right it is good when we are tired.
