It is the time of the year when hot soups goes in high demand. It is fall this time of the year here in Chicago, and the weather is getting colder as time passes by. Having warm or hot soup can make you feel warm and comfy – this is where this egg drop soup comes into the picture. I also created this blog post as a reply to a request that I got from Alex regarding an easy to make soup dish that can be made within 20 minutes.
This Egg Drop Soup Recipe can be made within 18 minutes (10 to 12 minutes if you really are in a hurry). I think that this is one of the best soups to prepare if you are busy and don’t have enough time to prepare your meal. Another good thing about egg drop soup is the fact that it does not cost much – yes, it is cheap – but delicious.
