Easy Egg Drop Soup with Cabbage

Have this delicious egg drop soup on your table in less than 30 minutes

Simple and classy, egg drop soup is so easy to prepare. It’s delicious and light, but packed with flavour. This wintery version elevates homely cabbage and turnip with ease as hearty additions to the gingery broth—perfect for warming your insides on a crisp winter day. The eggs, however, are the stars of the show, as the swirling soup transforms them into lacy ribbons. There are countless versions of this soup, with the common elements being stock and eggs. Many European and Asian countries have their own regional recipes, and our adaptation follows suit, staying seasonal and local with its ingredients.
