Egg Drop Soup

Our family loves going out to Chinese food! Our favorite meals always start with a cup of egg drop soup. But it’s missing when we eat Chinese at home… Until now.

Egg drop soup is soup-er (sorry about the pun) easy to make!

1 14oz can of chicken broth

1 cup of water

1/4 cup chopped green onion

1/8 teaspoon white sugar

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch

1/4 cup cold water

1-2 eggs (depending on how egg-y you want your soup)

1 tablespoon cold water

Heat chicken broth, water and green onion in a medium saucepan until almost to a simmer over med-high heat.
