Egg Flower Soup

Through the Tastemakers program at Foodbuzz, I was offered some merchandise from Asian Food Grocer. Asian Food Grocer is one amazing website! I have a strong fondness for Asian cooking and Asian food, so you can imagine my eyes got big and I felt just like the proverbial kid in a candy store. So many exotic products that I drool over when I see them on your blogs but can never find locally. Asian Food Grocer is the answer to my Asian cooking prayers!


Besides the exotic, they carry a wide array of pantry staples at very reasonable prices. Each and every item I ordered was neatly packaged and delivered in a matter of days. Go check out Asian Grocers, I bet you'll add them to your Favorites.


With cooler weather on the horizon, my craving for soup is calling.



Egg Flower Soup sounded and looked very appetizing, I had to get a pack. Talk about fresh tasting and easy to prepare! Less than 15 minutes and you're done. Serves three



Pour the contents of the envelope into a medium sized pot. This is just too easy, even the homegirlz can manage this.

Whisk in water, I think it was 2 cups. I really don't remember, but the package tells you how much, so it's all good. Once everything is thoroughly combined, let it come up to a boil.






While you're waiting on the water to boil, whisk one egg and set aside.



Once the water comes to a boil lower the heat and let it bubble for 5 minutes, then add the egg and stir in ONE direction. This is very important for the authentically cool Asian egg effect.



Doesn't it look like you're at your favorite Asian restaurant?



Now you can sit back and watch the New Orleans Saints stomp all over who ever they are playing this week or curl up with your favorite movie, because you just made takeout at home!

A great meal for when you are just too tired to make from scratch. Looks tasty! I hope they bring the tastemakers program to Canada, looks like lots of fun.

I think we all need a few of these "fall back" dinners for those nights we just can't pull it together.

I've never used a packet for this, but if you say it was good, I'll give it a try.

I've used this product; it's really very good indeed. As good as our local Chinese takeout.

Well I don't know who New Orleans is playing, but I picked them in my football league. I pick by which city I would rather live in, and New Orleans won.

Tee hee, sorry, since I grew up Asian food, I'm alway amused to hear people so excited about it! ;-)

Helene said...

I've never had an Egg Flower Soup before but that sounds delicious.

I was so happy when Sunshine Market opened here in Knoxville last year. They have aisles and aisles of this stuff.
