It’s an invaluable skill to have as many lightning fast, flavor-packed simple recipes memorized so that you can pull together a meal from ingredients you already have in your kitchen. This easy homemade egg drop soup is a recipe you’ll want to file away for a rainy day… or every day!
Because this recipe is so simple, I recommend using really great quality ingredients for the best flavor.

|15 Minute Egg Drop Soup|| |
- 3 cans, or about 5¼ cups, good quality chicken broth
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- ¼ tsp garlic powder
- 2 heaping TBS cornstarch
- 4 eggs
- Sesame oil for drizzling
- Salt, to taste
- Sliced green onion and freshly ground black pepper for garnish
- In a medium saucepan, whisk together the chicken broth, ground ginger, garlic powder, and cornstarch until fully combined. Place the saucepan on the stove and heat to a boil, stirring occasionally.
- While the broth comes to a boil, whisk the eggs in a measuring cup (or other easy pour container).
- Once the broth is boiling, remove from heat and begin stirring the broth in a circular motion while slowly drizzling in the eggs. The eggs will instantly cook as it hits the boiling liquid.
- Drizzle in a little sesame oil for extra taste (I use about ½ tsp but you can use as much or as little as you prefer). Add salt, tasting until desired flavor is reached.
- Serve topped with sliced green onion and a sprinkle of black pepper.
