How to Make Egg Drop Soup (Gluten Free)

I have a thing for soup, especially in the winter.  I want to eat it every night and my family loves it to, so it’s kindof my go to meal when I am at a loss for what to cook, which is a lot of the time.

I love to eat egg drop soup when I’m eating out at a Chinese Restaurant.  However, I never really know if it’s gluten free or not.  I was craving it one day and decided to make it for my family.  Holy cow, it was to die for and everyone had seconds!  Every drop was gone from the pan and I made a double batch.  It’s so flavorful and so easy to make, even my husband made it once and that’s saying something.  Sorry honey.

When I took the photos for this recipe, I didn’t have any green onions, so I just threw in some cilantro for garnish.  It tasted just fine.

Here’s how to make egg drop soup
