Fast Friday -- Egg Drop Soup

This is one of my favorite soups and was really scared to make it but it is a simple dish and doesn't take long to prepare. Make up a Chinese dish to pair this with (I have even used the box mixes and the frozen bag dishes that you can find at your local grocery store).

Egg Drop Soup
Family Fun

4 cups chicken broth
3 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 egg, lightly beaten
10 to 12 fresh snow peas (optional)
1 green onion, finely sliced

Bring the chicken broth to a simmer in a 2 1/2- to 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. In a separate bowl, combine the water and cornstarch, then stir the cornstarch mixture into the simmering broth.

Bring the broth to a boil, then remove it from the heat. Slowly pour in the egg and gently stir it with a fork in one direction only, stirring slowly for long strands of egg, more rapidly for thinner shreds. Add the snow peas and the green onion. Let the soup stand for a few minutes before serving.

Serves 4.
