Elegant Egg Flower Soup

I love this soup.  It is easy to prepare and makes a lovely first course or a nice lunch soup.  I found the recipe in the December 2008 issue of Health Magazine.  It was reprinted from Quick and Easy Chinese: 70 Everyday Recipes by Nancie McDermott.  I like to chop up the spinach leaves a bit before putting them into the hot broth. 

Egg Flower Soup
Makes 2 servings

  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups spinach leaves
  • 1/2 tsp dark sesame oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 3 Tbs thinly sliced scallions
  1. In a medium saucepan, bring 4 cups chicken broth to a rolling boil over medium-high heat.
  2. Stir in 2 cups spinach leaves, 1/2 teaspoon dark sesame oil, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, allowing the spinach to wilt into the soup.
  3. Stir well until the chicken broth is swirling in circles.
  4. Slowly pour 2 beaten eggs into soup, and continue to stir gently for about 30 seconds. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons thinly sliced scallions onto the soup, and serve hot.
