Egg Drop Soup (or Egg Flower Soup)

Posted on | January 11, 2010 | 5 Comments

I was hungry. I was reading a forum in which someone mentioned “slurping the egg drop soup.” So I googled a recipe, figuring I’d add it to next month’s menu plan. I found a few recipes on the WWW & decided to give it a whirl. Right then. I never realized how easy egg drop soup was to make. In an effort to feed my family more foods that are nutrient dense (in other words, more bang for my buck), it is important to use homemade broth or stock. I also specified pastured eggs, which are far more nutritious than caged birds. If you don’t know where to find pastured eggs, try Local Harvest or Eat Wild. This is my version of Egg Drop Soup:

    Hey! Glad to see you back, we missed you. Hope you got all rested up. I took a break too, now we're into full time Spring cleaning mode!

    Thanks for the recipe, I'll try it for dinner for Cortney and myslef, MIke wouldn't eat it *sigh*, he's far, far better but still a picky eater.

    Well geeeeeeesh, that looks easy enough. Might have to give this a try after I make some more stock.

    What the heck is 5-spice? Never seen it before. This sounds like a nice lunch mean for my kiddos that would get the broth into them.

    It’s big in Asian cuisine. It contains 5 spices- fennel seed, star anise, ginger, cloves & cinnamon. Some will contain salt &/or pepper. HOWEVER, I’ve also read that the name “5-spice” refers to elements rather than the number of ingredients in it.
