Making Egg Soup:

Step 1: prepare the broth.

This type of soup is better to cook with broth, which stood in the fridge for 1 day or at least settled 12 hours. During this time, the broth manages to absorb the smell of vegetables and spices. In our recipe, chicken stock and ready-made. Take 4.5 cups of chicken broth and separate half a cup of teapot from it. Set the glass with the broth cast into it aside. It will come in handy later. The remaining broth is poured into a deep saucepan and put on a stove that is turned on to a medium level. The broth should boil. While our broth will reach the boiling water stage, we will prepare all the other ingredients that we will need for our egg soup.

Step 2: prepare and add the onion with spices.

We take 100 grams of green onions, rinse it under running water and shake it so that there are no drops of water left on it. The washed onions are laid on a cutting board and chopped into medium pieces with a knife. The approximate diameter of chopped onion slices 5 by 5 mm. Our broth boiled. We fasten the plate to a medium level and add chopped green onions to it, helping ourselves with a knife directly from the cutting board. Also add half a tablespoon of ground ginger and 1 whisper allspice. We need all these ingredients to make the broth even more fragrant. Let the onions and spices boil together over medium heat for a couple of minutes. Cook the onion in the broth for 2 to 3 minutes.

Step 3: brewing corn starch.

While the onion with spices is cooked in the broth, we take a small saucepan and pour half a glass of the broth set aside by us into it. We put a saucepan with still cold broths on a stove included in the middle level. This broth is not necessary to boil, warm it about up to 40 degrees and set aside. Pour into the preheated broth 1 tablespoon corn starch. Pour starch into the pot with the broth slowly, in a small thin stream. At the same time, mix it with a tablespoon so that the starch dissolves better and is free from lumps. Pour the diluted corn starch into a large pot, in which the broth with green onions and spices peacefully gurgles. He will make our soup more rich and thick. Pour the mass of starch and broth, slowly all the time, stirring the broth with ladles.

Step 4: prepare the eggs.

Take a deep bowl and drive into it 4 chicken eggs. We carefully break the fifth egg with a knife into halves, take only the yolk from it and add it to the rest of the eggs. This is done so that the yolk in the eggs is more than protein. We do not need protein with 5 eggs. Salt a lot of eggs. We do it to taste, but do not forget that the broth is salty. Add a whisper of allspice and beat with a fork until foam.

Step 5: combine all the ingredients.

Onions in the broth boiled. A pleasant aroma of spices flies through the kitchen. It's time to add eggs to the soup. We take a bowl with beaten eggs, bring it to the pan with the broth and onions and, just like starch, pour it in a thin stream into the gurgling almost ready soup. At the same time, do not forget to shake the broth and the egg pouring in with a fork. This process is needed so that the egg in the soup turns out to be airy. Turn the stove on a high temperature, let the soup boil 5 minutes and set the pan off the stove. Egg soup is ready. Pour it with soup ladle into plates or deep soup cups.

Step 6: serve the egg soup.

Egg soup is served as a side dish for any kind of meat. The meat may be stewed, boiled or fried. On top of the soup you can sprinkle with herbs and put sour cream next to it with black or white sliced ​​bread. Separately, you can serve thick noodles seasoned with butter to the soup. This soup is very loved by both children and adults. Feel free to cook, and be sure to hear the words "thank you" and "you can add." Enjoy your meal!
