Supplies Used to Make Egg Drop Soup Recipe

  • Silicone whisk | Use a whisk to mix in the eggs so they form ribbons of eggs throughout the soup. This silicone whisk is ideal for use with the Instant Pot and with the optional nonstick inner pot.
  • Asian restaurant-style soup bowls with spoons | These traditional Asian-style restaurant soup bowls are on our wish list. Serve egg drop soup like a pro with these bowls and matchings spoons!
  • Extra Instant Pot silicone sealing ring | The silicone sealing ring in your Instant Pot needs to be changed out a couple times a year. Some people swear by having two sealing rings in rotation: one for sweet recipes and one for savory food.

Egg drop soup calories are pretty reasonable! You will find 75 calories when you do 4 servings for this recipe. And 4 grams of protein in egg drop soup.

It is a great recipe to use, and super simple to whip up.

Is Keto Egg Drop Soup Thick

This keto version does not use cornstarch the way a traditional egg drop soup does. But you will find even though it isn't as thick, it is still just as savory.

The rich broth, ribbons of eggs. It is so refreshing and nourishing to your body.

Can You Reheat Egg Drop Soup?

Reheating egg drop soup can be done, but the biggest thing is to know that the texture will be different. The reheating will cause the eggs to overcook, so it will be more rubbery.

It still tastes good, just different. If you know you won't eat it all, you can remove some of the soup and store without the eggs in it. Then reheat and mix in the eggs.

Can You Freeze Egg Drop Soup?

I do not recommend freezing this soup. It is going to totally change the texture of the soup. The beauty of this soup is it doesn't take much to make.

So you can easily throw together a quick meal or starter in no time.

  • Can my dog have Egg Drop Soup? I don't recommend giving your dog Egg Drop Soup. This soup contains garlic and green onion, toxic ingredients for your dear friend. Also, the strong flavors of chili and ginger can hurt the delicate digestive system of your dog, causing vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach pain.
  • Can my cat have Egg Drop Soup? The ingredients in this Egg Drop Soup are not recommended for your cat's diet. Your feline companion can be poisoned by consuming garlic and green onion. And just like dogs, they are very sensitive to the spicy flavors of chili peppers and ginger, which can give them a hard time.
