Vegetable Egg drop soup - a recipe
The problem with me and recipes is that I can NEVER follow them to a T. Thats why I find baking challenging as that could lead to a serious disaster. Either way I decided to do the free soup from weight watchers which turned into a not so free but very delicious winter warmer.
What you need:
Tin of mexican style tomatoes (if you dont get them where you are just used tin tomatoes, add some chilli and coriander/cilantro)
1 egg white
500ml Vegetable stock
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of sugar (optional)
What to do:
Chop up all your veg. Fry off the onions in a tiny bit of olive oil in a soup pot. Throw in the rest of the veg and toss a little. Add the tinned tomatoes and and the vegetable stock. Allow to cook until all the veggies are nice and soft and add you herbs and spices, salt and pepper to taste and a pinch of sugar to balance out any acidity. Once the soup is ready, whisk your egg white (or the whole egg if you are not watching your weight/cholesterol), take the soup off the heat and stir it, as you stir SLOWLY pour in your egg.
Either eat is as is or serve with a fresh, warm roll (I love the woolies heat and eat collection)
