This egg drop soup with rice recipe is about as simple as they come. It’s ready in about 10 minutes, uses leftover cooked rice, and is a comforting and satisfying dish. I always have leftover rice in the fridge, like always. We make rice at least twice a week in our rice cooker to have along side some of our favorite dinners like Hawaiian BBQ Tofu Bowls, Sheet Pan Fajitas, or Air Fryer Bang Bang Tofu. It’s always hard to gauge how much rice we’ll need so I usually make extra, that way I can refrigerate any leftovers and cook with them the next day. Usually I make vegetarian fried rice with my leftovers, but this rice and egg drop soup recipe is my absolute new go-to.

  • Warm
  • Comforting
  • Bright
