READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

Posted for ZWT6 for the Asian region. My hubby is so happy I'm part of ZWT this year as now I'm posting recipes that I can't eat (seafood allergy) but he can! Found this recipe in the Dec. 2009 Simple & Delicious magazine.

Once in a great while, when we're out for dinner, I try egg drop soup, & although it's OK, it isn't usually something to rave about! Well, not here, with this soup, & that's probably due to the inclusion of the broccoi, the carrot AND the shrimp! I did cut most of the ingredients back by half, since there were just 2 of us, however, I did include a generous 1/3 lb of the shrimp! A WON-DER-FUL keeper of a recipe, & thanks for sharing it!
