One of the things I like the most about this simple egg drop soup recipe is that i can make it anytime since it is so fast and has very simple ingredients that are quick to whip up. It’s just combining a few ingredients and bringing it to a boil so it can be done in minutes rather than some soups which can take hours or have to cook in a slow cooker.

How to Make Simple Egg Drop Soup

This simple egg drop soup needs only a few basic, non fancy ingredients and it can be whipped up in minutes! To get started, just gather together the following ingredients and you’ll have hot soup ready in no time!


  • Eggs
  • Chicken Stock or Bone Broth
  • Fresh Ginger
  • Tamari Sauce (Or Soy Sauce)
  • Green Onions
  • Sesame Oil


  1. Add all of the ingredients except the eggs into a pot and bring to a boil.
  2. Crack eggs separately into a bowl, whisk and set aside.

Is Egg Drop Soup Good For You?

Egg drop soup, at least in this recipe, is actually quite a good source of protein and is keto and low carb friendly making it a great choice for those on a low carb or restricted carbohydrate diet.

Does Egg Drop Soup Freeze Well?

If you decide you want to freeze this, it is best to freeze the broth before adding the green onion and the eggs. Have the broth frozen in smaller portions, that way you can just heat it and add the remaining ingredients to the soup to avoid any unpleasant textures.

How Long is Egg Drop Soup Good For in The Refrigerator?

Like most soups, it’s best to only keep it in the fridge for 3-4 days.This recipe is for about 3-4 people and is eaten quite quickly!
