When I'm sick, "egg drop" soup is my favourite remedy. It is soothing, tasty and nutritious, and it takes very little time to prepare. —BC Mama

  • Serves 2
  • 2 cups Vegetable Broth
  • 150 milliliters Finely Sliced Packet of Silken Tofu (appoximately 5oz) - Or you can use one beaten egg if you prefer the soup to be lacto-ovo vegetarian
  • 3 or 4 Finely Sliced Shitake Mushrooms
  • 1/2 Inch Piece of Ginger Finely Grated
  • 1 Clove of Garlic Finely Grated
  • 1 tablespoon Rice Wine Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • 1 Stalk of Finely Diced Scallion
  • 1/2 tablespoon Soy Sauce (or use Gluten-free Tamari Sauce)
  • Sriracha to Taste (Optional)
In This Recipe
  1. In a medium sized sauce pan, add all of your ingredients other than your tofu and scallions. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add your tofu slowly and stir. Reduce to a simmer. If you are using an egg, bring your soup down to a simmer and slowly pour in the beaten egg while you are stirring the soup.
  3. Check for seasoning. If it lacks flavour add more Soy Sauce. When I have a cold, I love Sriracha in this soup! But, you might want to avoid adding any if you have a sore throat or upset stomach.
  4. When you are ready to serve, add your scallions. Enjoy your soup and feel better soon.

My kids and I LOVED this recipe! However, when I tried to "pin" it to Pinterest it wanted to save every other recipe on the page instead of the soup : (
