Egg drop soup was a favorite soup that my husband used to get at the Chinese buffet when we were in college! Feeling a bit nostalgic, I wanted to cook him up a pot full — but using much healthier ingredients than those msg filled buffets! This is a super-easy, super tasty soup for egg lovers! You could even increase the amount of beaten eggs used if you desire more protein. Also, remember that you can use vegetable broth if you are vegetarian.

  2. Slice the mushrooms. Any mushrooms will work (but shiitake mushrooms offer a unique, strong flavor so try and source them if you can).
  3. Combine the arrowroot powder and water in a small bowl.
