Tomato Egg Flower Soup

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Grandma Kay

A classic Chinese soup, brothy in nature, rich with tofu. Kind of like egg drop soup with a kick! From Grandpa Bill's collection.

YUM!! This was so fast & easy! I did roast the tofu cubes a bit so that they were firmer. And I used a can of diced tomatoes. Excellent recipe. Thanks, Sue!
