One of the simplest soups one can make, this remains one of my all time favorites.
Egg Drop Soup
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon soy sauce
1/4 teaspoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon cornstarch (optional)
2 teaspoons water (optional)
1 egg, beaten
1 drop yellow food coloring (optional)
1 teaspoon chopped fresh chives
1/8 teaspoon salt (optional)
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper (optional)
In a small saucepan, combine the chicken broth, soy sauce and sesame oil.
Bring to a boil.
Stir together the cornstarch and water to dissolve cornstarch; pour into the boiling broth.
Stir gently while you pour in the egg and yellow food coloring if using.
Season with chives, salt and pepper before serving.
