“This is a lighter version of the usual Egg Drop soup, as it's not thickened with cornstarch before serving. It's super easy, and even passes the toddler test for likability!”
2 big bowls of soup

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine stock, ginger and garlic in a medium saucepan and bring to boil over medium heat.
  2. Combine eggs and green onion in a small bowl and beat lightly.
  3. Once boiling, add bok choi or spinach and let simmer until tender.
  4. While stirring soup, slowly drizzle the egg mixture into the still simmering soup. The faster you stir and the slower you drizzle, the finer the egg's consistency will be.
  5. Continue to simmer for a 1-2 minutes to ensure that the egg is thoroughly cooked, then remove from heat and season with salt and pepper. Also season with soy sauce to taste if a more Chinese flavour is desired. (I prefer to omit this ingredient as I prefer a more vietnamese flavour).
  6. Divide into individual bowls and garnish with cilantro.
