EGG DROP SOUP #chinesefood #soups

EGG DROP SOUP #chinesefood #soups

This simple Egg drop soup formula will taste simply like your preferred Chinese eatery's egg drop soup (perhaps somewhat better). It's scrumptious, and can be made in minutes.

The name "Egg Drop" originates from how the soup is made—dropping crude egg into hot soup. It doesn't take a virtuoso to make sense of that.

However, the immediate interpretation in Chinese is egg bloom soup, in light of the fact that the egg makes huge and little whirls in the soup in a blossom like example (look down to the formula video underneath to see that in real life).

There are numerous varieties of egg drop soup, yet this formula is a great eatery style egg drop soup that you can make at home.

EGG DROP SOUP #chinesefood #soups


  • 4 cups chicken stock (about 1 liter, organic or homemade preferred!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric (Or 5 drops yellow food coloring. Optional, but if you want "the look...")
  • 3 tablespoons cornstarch (mixed with 1/3 cup water)
  • 3 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1 scallion (chopped)


  1. Bring the chicken stock to a simmer in a medium soup pot. Stir in the sesame oil, salt, sugar, and white pepper. Add in the turmeric or 5 drops of yellow food coloring, if using. This will give the soup that rich restaurant-style yellow color, but it is optional. Taste the soup, and adjust the seasoning if needed.
  2. Next add the cornstarch and water mixture. Make sure the cornstarch and water is mixed well, as the cornstarch settles very quickly. Stir the soup continuously as you drizzle in the slurry, or you'll get clumps of cooked starch in your soup. Use more or less starch if you like a thicker or thinner soup. You can also add the starch in a couple small batches, let the soup simmer for a couple of minutes, then check to see if the consistency is to your liking.
  3. Now we're ready for the most exciting part: the egg. This recipe calls for the egg to be lightly beaten, which results in both white and yellow egg swirls. The speed at which you stir the soup when adding the egg also determines whether you get large “egg flowers” or small egg flowers (i.e. swirly bits of egg). Use a ladle to stir the soup in a circular motion, and slowly drizzle in the egg until you have added it all.
  4. Ladle the soup into bowls, top with scallions, and serve!
