Egg Drop Miso Courgetti Soup

Optimized-IMG_9828

Granted this egg drop miso courgetti soup isn’t a looker, but it tastes wonderful. I used courgetti instead of noodles to make it healthier (and because I love them), but it would equally be as nice with real noodles to make it more filling.

Egg drop soup is a Chinese soup made by creating a flavourful broth, then adding a thin stream of beaten eggs which cook in the hot broth, creating thin strands of egg that float in the soup. It is a quick way to add protein to soup, which I usually find difficult to add into vegetarian soups. Blending a chicken is all well and good for the meat eater, but it doesn’t have quite the same taste or effect when using tofu…

Sorry I haven’t posted recently, my laptop has gone boom so I have very limited access to a computer. I’m hoping to salvage the hard drive as it has so many pictures on which I haven’t backed up 🙁 The ironic thing is I bought a hard drive the day before it stopped working to do just that. C’est la vie. I have also therefore lost my photo editing software, so the pictures aren’t quite as refined as they usually are and massive! I can’t compress them as I cannot download an

Takes under 10 minutes to prepare. Serves 1-2.
