Mint Egg Drop Soup  

Makes 1 serving


¼ cup chicken stock

1 teaspoon soy sauce

2 Eggland’s BestⓇ Cage Free Eggs, divided

6 fresh mint leaves

1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil, divided



  1. In a medium saucepan combine 1¾ cups water, chicken stock, and soy sauce. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. 

  2. Into a medium bowl crack 1 egg and beat well with a fork. Turn the heat down to low. Use a spoon to create a vortex in the liquid, and pour the eggs gradually into the saucepan in a thin, steady stream. 

  3. Crack the remaining egg into the liquid to poach. Add mint leaves and ½ teaspoon sesame oil. Cook until the egg white is set but the yolk is still soft, 3-4 minutes.

  4. Pour remaining ½ teaspoon sesame oil into a serving bowl. Transfer poached egg to bowl and pour broth over it. Serve immediately.
