Poached Egg In Mint Leaves Soup


This recipe is modified from my mom's "egg drop mint leaves soup". With a small spice garden at home, mint leaves come in handy these days. Hence, I got the idea to cook this soup when I attempted to make poached egg the other day. The soup is so refreshing. :)

Poached Egg In Mint Leaves Soup
Serves 2

Ingredients
2 poached eggs
600ml of chicken stock
a handful of mint leaves
salt to taste
half tsp of garlic oil

Steps:
1. Bring the chicken stock to a boil.
2. Add salt to taste and garlic oil.
3. Add a poached egg in each bowl.
4. Pour the chicken stock to each bowl.
5. Garnish each serving with mint leaves. Serve hot.

My mum used to cook me this but I hate the mint flavour because it felt like drinking "colgate". LOL! But I think I finally know how to appreciate this soup now as I have overcome the taste of "colgate"-in-soup phobia :D

H
i!..Just want to point out that the basic nature of your clear soup leaves it very adaptable for using whatever herb you have at hand, in case mint is not your forte.
