I came up with this recipe while searching for the perfect "Egg Drop Soup". My picky 9 year old likes it, so I feel it is kid friendly.

I have made this several times and failed to review or rate the recipe. The time has come the walrus said.......This is a wonderful soup. I had to use the billion cubes so I omitted the salt. I also cut back on the number of eggs as I only had two but it was fun watching them cook when they hit the hot broth. I am making this again tonight as I have a cold and it sounds so good. I'm adding shrimp, green onion and the last carrot(shredded). Thanks for a great recipe.
