The Easiest Egg Drop Soup

The Easiest Egg Drop Soup created by mommyluvs2cook

I have no idea if this is even close to how Chinese restaurants actually make egg drop soup, but it tastes VERY similar. You will be shocked how simple this really is. My mom made this a lot and it was one of the first recipes I made myself. Feel free to throw in any leftover spinach, onions, etc. to this recipe.

    I have made a lot of egg drop soups but what I love about this one is that it gives the option to add spinach, which is a nice change!!! I added a good handful of spinach, but easily could have added more, it really cooks down a lot! I didn't have the green onions, which I would have loved to use, so I used chives instead. Yummy stuff!

    Wanted to make a quick soup for dinner to go along with a salad. What a nice surprise this turned out to be! Didn't have any green onions or spinach, so I just added some dried parsley for color. Next time I will use the onions and spinach. DH loved it, in fact, he requested this for his lunch tomorrow!
