How on earth did that happen? It is THE perfect day for it.
Thinly slice the green onions. Use a vegetable peeler or the side of a spoon to scrape the skin from the ginger, then use a cheese grater to grate about 1 Tbsp. Add the mushrooms, green onions, and ginger to a large soup pot along with 1 Tbsp cooking oil. Add 4 cups chicken broth, 2 cups water, and 1 Tbsp soy sauce to the pot. In a small bowl stir together 1 Tbsp cornstarch with 1 Tbsp water until the cornstarch is completely dissolved.
Pour the cornstarch slurry into the soup pot and stir to combine. Bring the soup up to a boil over medium-high heat. While waiting for the soup to boil, whisk two eggs in a bowl. Once the soup is boiling, turn the heat down to low and wait until the soup stops boiling. Use a large wooden spoon to stir the pot and make the broth swirl in one direction.
While the soup is swirling, slowly pour the whisked eggs into the soup in a thin stream. Let the eggs sit in the hot liquid, undisturbed, for minutes to fully set. Finally, add the fresh spinach to the pot and stir until it has wilted. Taste and adjust the salt by adding more soy sauce, if needed. Do NOT pour the eggs into a rapidly boiling soup or else it will break apart into very small pieces and you will not have egg threads.
Perfect for a cold rainy day! Step By Step Photos Begin by washing and slicing 8oz. The original version of this recipe only used 4oz. This is what I use to make my broth. In a small bowl, stir together 1 Tbsp cornstarch and 1 Tbsp water. Stir the cornstarch slurry into the soup pot. Bring the soup up to a boil. The small amount of cornstarch helps thicken the soup ever so slightly, giving it more body and helping the egg stay in nice threads rather than just mixing into the broth.
While waiting for the soup to come up to a boil, whisk two eggs in a bowl. Once the soup reaches a boil, turn the heat down to low and wait for it to stop boiling. If you like thin, pretty threads of egg, you must wait for it to stop boiling. Then, take a large spoon and start swirling the soup in one direction. And then you can stir the pot to bring the egg threads up to the surface and see their beauty. Finally, add in a couple handfuls of fresh baby spinach and stir until they are wilted into the broth.
Seriously easy Egg Drop Soup! That ginger in the broth makes it SOOO soothing!
