I had a fun time teaching my kids how to make this easy Chinese Egg Drop Soup. All you need is chicken stock (or just water), eggs, scallions, salt, and pepper. I know many of you will know, egg drop soup is meant to be clear with thin, silken strands of eggs. A little trick to avoid clumps of eggs in the soup is to slowly stream the beaten egg into the boiling stock and then whisking it quickly with a fork. There you have it, a hot bowl of simple and delicious home made egg drop soup.

Bring the chicken stock to a rolling boil. Slowly stream the egg into the stock and whisking quickly with a fork to form fine shreds. Season the soup with sea salt.
To serve, top with chopped scallions, pepper and drizzle with sesame oil, if desired. Serve immediately.
