Egg Drop Soup (Tan Hua T'ang)

Egg Drop Soup

Egg Drop Soup is a Chinese soup of wispy beaten eggs in boiled chicken broth.



  1. Bring the chicken broth to a boil over moderate heat.
  2. Mix the cornstarch with the water and stir it into the broth. Add the soy sauce, optional ginger, and pepper. Return the soup to a boil and remove from heat.
  3. Beat the eggs slightly, so that they are broken up but the yolks and the whites are not completely mixed together. Slowly pour the eggs into the soup while gently stirring to form long threads of the eggs.
  4. Divide the scallion slices between the individual serving bowls and ladle the soup over them.

Serves 4 to 6.
