Egg Drop Soup

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Halcyon Eve

From Simple & Delicious--which describes this soup well. It's very easy to make, and tastes wonderful. My 2-year old ate seconds and wanted more. Prep time includes cook time as it's just a couple minutes. I served it with Fried Rice and Sweet & Sour Popcorn Chicken, plus some chicken & veggie egg rolls.

Just as good as the restaurant! I added some finely shredded chicken to my bowl to make a complete and filling lunch. I will make this again and serve it with an Asian themed dinner. Thanks!
