Egg Drop Soup

Here is an easy recipe for making authentic egg drop soup like you get in Chinese restaurants. Feel free to add in some veggies like frozen peas or carrots if you’d like. This delicious soup can be made literally in a matter of minutes.



  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. white pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric 
  • 3 Tbsp cornstarch mixed into a slurry with 1/3 cup water
  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 scallion, minced


  1. Place the broth, sesame oil, sugar, salt, white pepper and turmeric into a medium soup pot and bring to a simmer. 
  2. Once the broth is simmering, stir in the cornstarch/water mixture and stir continuously as you drizzle in the cornstarch slurry. 
  3. Next, stir in the beaten eggs and swirl in a circular motion. I use a pair of chopsticks for this. 
  4. Ladle the egg drop soup into serving bowls and top with minced scallion.
