This Korean-style egg drop soup is a great last-minute meal that is quick and easy to prepare. Serve with a bowl of rice for a cozy and filling meal. I was surprised at how much my toddler enjoyed this soup. I hope you give it a try.
Traditionally, the broth is made with dried anchovies and kelp. Here I used chicken broth that is more easily accessible in the States.
This recipe was developed in partnership with Nellie’s Free Range.
Since eggs are the star of the dish, make sure to use a high-quality option like Nellie’s Free Range Eggs for this soup. Nellie’s hens are Certified Humane Free Range, which means they live happy lives outdoors, and you can see and taste the difference that this lifestyle makes in their eggs. The shell is thicker, the yolk has a golden color, and the taste is richer – you’ll really notice it in every sip of this egg drop soup.

Cooked this without the onions and mushroom for my father who just got out of a bowel resection surgery. Loved it thank you so much!
I’m so happy to hear that you enjoyed the recipe and wish your father a fast recovery.
