Have you ever made homemade egg drop soup? I never did until I found this recipe on Marilyn's Treats
After making my (adapted version of) Marilyn's recipe, all I have to say is it was - Fast, Easy, and Delicious!
I served a piping hot bowl to my husband, and he raved about it. He felt it was comparable to soup he eats in the Chinese restaurants. I was surprised because although the soup looked just like restaurant style egg-drop soup, I knew that this recipe was the Weight Watchers style version and was much lower in calories and fat than the restaurant style egg drop soup. This recipe does not call for cornstarch or added oils.
The recipe only has 3 ingredients, takes 5 minutes to make, and is really good!
If you want a soup to warm you up on a cool fall or a cold winter night, Pin the recipe for later!
If you are like me and enjoy a good bowl of hot nourishing soup no matter what the season, then make it now and enjoy.
I'm always on the look out for a fast and easy delicious soup. It doesn't get faster or easier than this homemade Chinese Egg Drop Soup. It's made from start to finish in just 5 minutes and the flavor is a match for your favorite Chinese restaurant, but less salty.
It's a simple 3 ingredient soup but packs a lot of punch.
The real plus of this soup recipe is that it is low in calories-
It is just 1 points plus on Weight Watchers.
You can make it to begin a meal and not have to feel guilty.
I have to admit that before I found this recipe, I had never imagined making my own egg drop soup. I have no experience cooking Chinese food. This was really easy. Thanks Marilyn.
As always my recipes are gluten free and vegetarian
