Egg Drop Soup Recipe

Serves 4 as part of a multicourse meal


2 tablespoons corn starch
3 tablespoons water
1 can (14-oz/400-g ) store-bought chicken broth
1 cup (250 ml) water
1/2 tomato, diced
3 dashes white pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
2 large eggs, lightly beaten


In a small bowl, mix the corn starch with the water. Stir to blend well. Set aside.

Bring to boil the chicken broth and water in a pot. Add the tomato, white pepper, salt, and thicken the soup with the corn starch mixture. Stir the soup with a ladle and turn off the heat. Swirl the beaten eggs into the soup and immediately stir around for three times with a pair of chopsticks. Cover the pot with its lid for 2 minutes. The eggs should be cooked and form into silken threads. Dish out into individual serving bowls and serve immediately.

    Nice Recipe. Good tip on turning the heat off before adding egg. Otherwise egg will cook too quickly and there won’t be nice “egg drop”
    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Sally says:

    The photo has red stuff in the soup but no reference to that in the recipe. The red looks like chili pieces. Also, the egg looks like it has cabbage mixed in. Is the photo attached to the correct recipe?

    Wow… simple recipe, add a scoop of jasmine rice to the bowl, slice of homemade bread and you have dinner! My kids loved it! This was a couple min prep and 15 min cooked, quick meal, quick clean up!

    I made this, and I must say, it was really bland and missing something. :(

  12. Eloise says:

    Hi Bee, how do you make your chicken broth? Would using a stock cube be an acceptable replacement? Thanks!

  13. Jag says:

    1. Great recipe. Thanks. One question on recipe measures:
    a.”1 3/4 cups (425 ml) homemade chicken broth”
    b.”1 cup (250 ml) water”

    2. The cup measures do not seem consistent? 3/4 cup= 188 ml? Please clarify.
