Egg Drop Soup

A little taste of Taiwan from World Gospel Mission’s International Cookbook

This simple soup is big on flavor and won’t take you long to whip up. With five basic ingredients, this Asian-inspired cuisine will not break the grocery budget either. This recipe served four people in the WGM test kitchen, so keep that in mind if you are cooking for a larger group.

We would recommend this soup for those cooler evenings when you may be tempted to order takeout. Check the pantry first because this can be put together in less than 10 minutes, and you can stay cozy in your own home. Enjoy!


  • 3 cups chicken stock
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • Dash of white pepper
  • 1-2 green onions, chopped
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten


Egg Drop Soup: gather your ingredients

Gather your ingredients. You will want them close by because this dish comes together in a flash.

Egg Drop Soup: add salt and white pepper

Get your chicken stock in the pot and add salt and white pepper to taste. If you are not familiar with the taste of white pepper, start small. You can always add more later to your taste.

Egg Drop Soup: onions add the element of texture
Egg Drop Soup: chop the green onions

While the broth is heating to a boil, grab the green onions for chopping. The onions are the element of texture to this dish so we would recommend a finer chop.

Egg Drop Soup: crack the eggs
Egg Drop Soup: give them a quick whisking
Egg Drop Soup: chop the green onions

Time to crack the eggs, give them a quick whisking, and incorporate the green onions into the mix.

Egg Drop Soup: pour the egg and onion mixture into the boiling broth
Egg Drop Soup: pour the egg and onion mixture into the boiling broth

After the broth has come to a boil, slowly pour the egg and onion mixture into the broth. Be sure to whisk or fork the broth as you pour. The egg mixture will foam as you pour. Just keep whisking to allow the egg to break up.

Egg Drop Soup: complement the soup with a fun side or dessert

And just like that, soup is ready. We complemented our soup with an egg roll and crab rangoons, but certainly a fortune cookie would be a fun side/dessert as well.
