I learned this quick and easy egg drop soup recipe when I was living in Japan. It’s good for a light appetizer or a comfort food when you have a cold.


  • 3 C. chicken broth
  • 1 green onion with top, chopped
  • 1 tsp salt
  • dash of pepper
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten


Bring broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add salt and pepper. In a small bowl, beat eggs and add onions to beaten eggs. Pour eggs into boiling broth slowly, stirring with fork so that egg forms into ribbons. Soup is ready when egg is cooked.
