Shitake Mushroom Tomato Egg drop soup


Shitake Mushroom Tomato Egg drop soup

Making nutritious meals is easy and you can easily substitute ingredients.  For this recipe, I used Shitake mushrooms which may not be readily available where you live so, in a pinch, you could substitute canned mushrooms and slice them thinly.  But, note, that fresh is always best.

  • Season the tomatoes and shitake mushroom with salt and allow them to sit for a couple of minutes before using.
  • Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the garlic and onion (please do not overcook) tomatoes and mushroom and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until the tomatoes start to soften.
  • Add the chicken stock or water. Bring to a simmer.
  • Then stir the soup to form a vortex in the center. Pour the egg into the center of the vortex and stir vigorously to form the lacy egg.
