Egg Drop Soup (With Tomato)


If you think soup boiling in crock pot or double-boiler for long hour is troublesome, this soup may save you all the troubles! What you need do is to boil some chicken stock on weekend and store it up for use on weekdays. Sounds easy and practical, right?

When I made this, basically vegetables were out of stock, except for 2 tomatoes and some spring onion left in the fridge. So, I decided to pair it up with 2 free range eggs to make this soup. Ended up, it's edible. :) You can always try it with baby spinach or mint leaves. It will taste much better. 


Egg Drop Soup
Serves 2

Ingredients:

500ml of chicken stock
2 free range eggs, beaten
2 tomatoes, diced
1 stalk of spring onion, chopped

Seasoning:

Salt to taste
dash of white pepper
few drops of sesame oil

Garnishing:

1 stalk of spring onion, chopped
1 tbsp of fried garlic

Steps:

1. Bring the chicken stock to boil in a pot. Add the diced tomato and leave it simmering for a while.

2. Pour in the beaten egg around the pot in a clock-wise manner. Do not stir the soup until the egg is cooked.

3. Add seasoning and garnish with spring onion. Serve hot.

I made similar before and added loofah(luffa) - that was because I had loofah (luffa). I will do exactly the same as you if left with similar ingredients. If not, just tomatoes fried with eggs.

Mmmm....my favourite soup. It's very appetising. A perfect soup when you don't have appetite for any other food. I cook this very often. Sometimes I add chopped celery too. A great soup to go with Chinese scallion pancakes.

A superfast soup I like! Healthy and delicious too! Having some chicken stock on hand can really save us lots of time in boiling soup. ;)

Tigerfish, I have never try to use luffa in making soup. Usually just baby spinach, choy sum and mint leaves.

Priya, thanks.

MaryMoh, I don't like celery, that's why no celery in my cooking, hehe...

petite nyonya, yup yup, all in one! :)

Anncoo, most importantly, it's easy to make.

Food For Tots, yea, very convenient with the chicken stock prepared up front.

Mary, thanks. You too, have a nice day!

Serene, Happy trying!

cariso said...

'edible',ha! Why say like that?! You cook one sure 'edible' lah! :)

I trust it is well beyond edible, as it is healthy as well. If stock is not available, I may simply simmer a soup with some dried shrimps and toss in a generous amount of green onions. I adore your use of free range eggs.

Juliana, thanks. :)

New Kid, yea, sort of, hehe...

cariso, this soup is ok nia lor, not so outstanding, hehe...

TasteHongKong, I trust free range egg, as the content is always clean.

I love soup but my hubs is not a huge fan =( Maybe I should cook something simple like this just for myself!
