Egg  Drop Soup with Tomato and Tofu


Egg drop soup is one of my favorite soups. It’s quick and easy, and I can add any kind of vegetables into it to give it more flavor and color.

Ingredients:Egg  Drop Soup with Tomato and Tofu

2 medium size tomatoes, 2 eggs, 1 small block tofu, corn starch, seasoning to taste.


1. Chop tofu into small tubes.

2. Put tofu tubes into boiling water, bring water to boil again, drain tofu well, set aside.

3. Drop tomatoes into hot water for about 1 minute, take out, then peel and chop into tubes.Egg  Drop Soup with Tomato and Tofu

4. Pour water in sauce pan, bring to boil, add seasoning to your taste.

I normally use salt, sugar and white pepper. I use much more sugar then normal, so the soup would taste sour and sweet.

5. Pour tomato tubes and tofu tubes into pan, bring to boil.

6. Mix about 1 tbsp corn starch and 2 tbsp water, stir quickly while pouring batter into pan.

7. Beat eggs well, stir quickly while slowly pouring into pan.Egg  Drop Soup with Tomato and Tofu

Always pour starch batter before eggs, so egg drops will float.

8. Add several drops of sesame oil into pan, remove from heat.

9. Transfer into bowl, serve when warm.

3. Heat up skillet on high heat, add cooking oil, then pour eggs into skillet, cook until eggs are firm. Meantime, keep stirring so eggs will break into pieces. Put cooked eggs back to the bowl, set aside.

4. Add cooking oil to skillet, keep cooking on high heat. Add tomatoes into skillet, add salt, sugar and some pepper to taste, cook until tomatoes get tender and the juice get thick.

It tastes better when you add more sugar compare to regular dish. My goal is cook it with a sour and sweet taste.
