Tag Archives: vegetarian egg drop soup

Quickly, before it’s too hot for soup!  I make this soup when I don’t really feel like cooking or eating, but I still want something hot to make the belly rumbles stop.  It hardly takes any time at all if you use frozen vegetables.

2 cups water

1 veggie bullion cube

1 TBSP cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 cup of water

2 TBSP frozen peas

4 baby carrots sliced into coins(or just get a bag of frozen peas & carrots, toss in 4 Tablespoons and call it done)

2 cloves of garlic, minced

1 egg

Put the water in a pot and set it to boil.  Throw in the bullion cube and peas and carrots and minced garlic. Let it boil for about 2 minutes, then add the cornstarch mixture, stirring continuously.  Then break the egg in a cup and stir it real good.  Stirring the soup slowly in one direction only(clockwise only, or counterclockwise only) add the egg a little at a time.  Then you can turn off the heat and keep stirring for about a minute.  At this point, I usually add a lot of soy sauce, but that’s only because they don’t make salt licks for humans and I have to get my sodium somewhere.  Then I stare at the steam for a bit and wait for it to cool off enough to eat while trying to keep the cat out of it.  It’s a fast, warm meal for a rainy day if you’re not very hungry.
