Easy Chinese Corn Soup

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kittencal@recipezazz

You won't even bother ordering this soup from a Chinese restaurant anymore, this is so easy to make and very good! For a thicker soup use more cornstarch, I like to add in some sesame oil also and if I am serving this to guests I also add in a few drops of yellow food colouring for a nicer presentation.

Eactly what I was looking for. Very easy to make. I didn't have frozen corn, so added a can or corn kernals (not cream of corn) in addition to two cans of cream of corn. I didn't have corn starch so thickened with a little flour mixed into water and it worked perfectly. To get ribbons, just slowly pour in eggs (very slow) and use a wisk to mix soup quickly as you pour eggs in. Thanks for the recipe.
