Egg Drop Soup with Shrimp

Hubby has been asking for more soups lately so being a good little wifey I have been making them, love them this time of year and makes a change for lunch. I got this simple and super tasty recipe from the Sweet Ann's blog Anncoo Journal. I made a couple of tweaks, added 5 spice and mushrooms and peas you know how our little one likes them :-) 

  • 1 Large egg (beaten)
  • 2 Tomatoes, chopped
  • one teaspoon of five spice powder
  • 10 raw shrimp
  • one teaspoon ginger/garlic paste
  • 1 1/2 cups vegetable stock
  • 2 cups water
  • a dash of fish sauce
  • 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • 5 sliced mushrooms 

  1. heat a little canola oil in a wok on high, add ginger/garlic paste, five spice and tomato and let it reduce down to a paste
  2. add stock, fish sauce, peas, mushrooms and simmer for 10 minutes with lid on
  3. Add in prawns and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. 
  4. Beat egg and pour in as the soup is boiling stirring it as you add
  5. season with fresh pepper and sliced spring onion
  6. enjoy
