Easy Weeknight Egg Drop Soup (Vegetarian, Gluten Free)

I love an easy, simple, and delicious recipe – and this Easy Egg Drop Soup fits all 3 categories.  It comes together in about 10 minutes, only requires a few ingredients, and is super comforting and filling.

Growing up, we had a really great Chinese restaurant in my town – and whenever my family went we would always get Egg Drop Soup.  I remember it being such a treat- thick and eggy with a yellow hue and bright green onions in the broth.  As an adult when I get Chinese food now, Egg Drop is still my favorite.

One of our favorite recipes on the homestead is Crispy Baked Tofu.  This Easy Egg Drop Soup is a great side to have with it. The sesame oil really completes the dish and gives the soup a complex flavor.  Adjust the chili flakes for more/less spice as you’d like 🙂

Serve this soup along side a veggie stir fry, fried rice, sweet & sour tofu… or just on its own!  Vegetarian and naturally gluten-free!
