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!
