Vegetarian Egg Drop Soup Recipe (Easy, High Protein)

 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
  • A Little Spicy
  • Simple to Make
  • Vegetarian, Gluten Free, and SO good!
