Sweet Corn Egg Drop Soup

CookingAddic This sweet corn egg drop soup comes together in no time and tastes way better than takeout.


Oh, the soup in the bowl? You should make it. 1. It’s pretty much the simplest thing ever. 2. It doesn’t have an entire container of cornstarch in it resulting in that disgusting gelatinous goop you get from takeout. 3. Ginger, sweet corn, basil, chives, toasted sesame seeds and a drizzle of sesame oil…tell me the Chinese food place can compare to that.
Didn’t think so.

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 3 cups + 1 tablespoon chicken or vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
  • 1 large clove garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • salt & pepper
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 1/4 cup basil, chiffonade
  • chopped chives for garnish
  • sesame oil for garnish
