  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 4 cups chicken broth you could also use vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • sriracha to taste, optional, but really delicious (we used 1 tablespoon)
  • 4 large eggs whisked
  • Green onions optional for garnish
  1. Place cornstarch into a saucepan.
  2. Slowly whisk in chicken broth. This helps prevent clumping.
  3. Turn on heat to medium, then add in ginger, garlic powder, and optional sriracha.
  4. Whisk to combine.
  5. Bring to a simmer, whisking occasionally.
  6. Once simmering, whisk eggs in bowl, then slowly pour (while whisking) into the hot soup. See video for visual.
  7. The hot soup cooks the eggs immediately.

  8. Serve and enjoy!
