This is a lovely Asian style soup with corn, egg, ham and sesame oil.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine broth, water and slices of fresh ginger over medium heat in a medium saucepan. Bring to slow boil and simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Remove ginger chunks.
  3. Add corn (and cayenne if using) and heat to boil.
  4. Meanwhile combine cornstarch and cold water.
  5. Add cornstarch mixture to soup and boil for a few minutes until soup has thickened.
  6. Add ham and heat through - shouldn't take long since its finely diced.
  7. Remove from heat. Add sesame oil and then SLOWLY add egg white while stirring. Adding the egg white slowly will help create a pretty ribbon effect.
