Vegetarian Egg Drop Soup
Member Name: Zombietheo
Advantages: tasty and quick and you can make litres of it with the ingredients
Sometimes, after an especially late night at the office I really can not be bothered to do much in the way of cooking. It's not lazy, it's close to exhaustion.
This is my easy recipe for a tasty soupy based meal. Some may call it snack.
You will need for one person, maybe two people:
half pint of vegetable stock
2-3 eggs beaten a little but not too much
1 spring onion
pinch of pepper (white or black)
pinch of chilli (optional)
Splash of Oyster Sauce
Cornstarch 1 tablespoon, more if you like a thicker soup
A spoon and a bowl
What you do:
Stock goes in the pan and gets heated thoroughly, add splash of oyster sauce and stir it in well, add finely chopped spring onion, add the pepper and chilli, add the cornstarch stirring it in nicely. Chuck your peas in. Let it go for a few minutes and then, finally start drizzling the egg in slowly whilst stirring. transfer to a bowl or eat straight from the pan.
This will take you all of five minutes to do. It is so freaking simple and quite delicious. You do not need to put peas in it unless you want to. Add a splash of light soy sauce if you want.
If you're not a veggie, you can add a small amount shredded and cooked chicken.
Summary: really quick, really easy and really nice
