Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 4 cups chicken broth you could also use vegetable broth

  • Bring to a simmer, whisking occasionally.
  • Once simmering, whisk eggs in bowl, then slowly pour (while whisking) into the hot soup.
  • The hot soup cooks the eggs immediately.
  • Serve and enjoy!
