 This Vegetarian Egg Drop Soup Recipe is simple, comforting, and quick- ready in 10 minutes, this soup only has a few ingredients and is a tasty weeknight meal. Great to serve along side a stir fry, crispy baked tofu, or spring rolls. 

This vegetarian egg drop soup recipe is one of the simplest and quickest recipes around! 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, Egg Drop is still my favorite – but I like to make a better version at home.

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.

This Vegetarian Egg Drop Soup Recipe Is:

  • Bright
  • Fresh
  • Comforting
  • Satisfying

What’s In This Vegetarian Egg Drop Soup Recipe?

Be sure to visit the recipe card below for full ingredient amounts and recipe instructions!

  • Eggs
  • Low Sodium Vegetable Stock – I like to use a low sodium vegetable stock for my recipes because it has great flavor… without all the salt. I always use low sodium or no-salt-added broth or stock to start, and then I can add salt or other spices later if needed.
  • Corn Starch: the secret to thicken the soup at the end, it really makes a difference.
  • Toasted Sesame Oil: The sesame oil gives the perfect toasty flavor to the soup. Toasted sesame oil has a ton of flavor, so you only need a few drops.
  • Red Chili Pepper Flakes: for a little heat! I like to add a few shakes to this recipe to give this dish a nice complex depth of flavor.
  • Soy Sauce or Tamari: tamari is a gluten-free version of soy sauce. Tamari has a bright salty flavor, and adds a really nice depth of umami to this dish.
