Sisterly-ness


Earlier today I drove to Rancho Cucamonga to have lunch with my friend Rachel!  Since I’d driven that far I figured I would also visit my sister!

The best part of visiting my sister is all the good food her and her husband have!

Before dinner, I snacked on blueberries and raspberries!!  YUM!  They always have such yummy healthy food (and sometimes not so healthy too but mostly always healthy).

For dinner, my sister is making egg drop soup!  Here comes her recipe.  This recipe is not entirely vegetarian as it uses chicken broth.  I’m sure vegetable broth would work too!  (note: I am eating this to avoid being a “picky eater” when I’m in someone’s home I can’t impose my lifestyle on them).

Laura’s Egg Drop Soup

1 tsp fresh grated ginger
2 tbsp soy sauce
36 oz chicken broth
4 green onions
4 eggs
2 tbsp corn starch

Ingredients were gathered:  Ginger , Chicken Broth, Green Onions, Soy Sauce, Corn Starch, Eggs (Cage-free!)

Step 1:  Grate the ginger (about a tsp) and chop the green onions.  You may get the urge to put in more than a tsp of ginger, but she urges against this.

Step 2:  Put the broth in a pot .  Add 2 tbsp soy sauce and the grated ginger.

Step 3: Gather a bit of your broth and dissolve the corn starch in it.  Then add it to your pot.

Step 4: Heat it, it’ll thicken only a little bit

Step 5:  Beat eggs in a bowl.  Once the soup is heated (but not violently boiling) slowly drizzle in the egg while stirring the soup.

Step 6:  Add green onions.  Serve and enjoy!

This was gingery and very delicious!  I highly recommend it!

Now we’re enjoying a glass of wine and watching Four Christmases!

Have a great night!!

    I just watched Four Christmases! I thought it was pretty funny. 🙂
    My Mom always makes me egg drop soup when I’m sick, and her Mom taught her how to make it! It’s so cool seeing someone else eats it too!

    I love egg drop soup, my mum always makes them with miso soup.
    Just being curious but do you eat (or is it drink??) chicken broth? And what are your thoughts on products made from animals (not dairy but gelatine, worcestershire sauce, broth…). Is it ok for you to eat it? I’ve been wondering how other vegetarian bloggers felt about it..

      Chicken broth is tough because it’s in so many things. I’m sure I eat it unknowingly a lot, but at home I always buy vegetable broth. I also love Jello!

      Honestly, I don’t consider myself to be a hard core vegetarian. For me, reducing my consumption is more important than eliminating all animal products. I know that may sound hypocritical but something is better than nothing right?

      Do you consume chicken broth and other animal related products?
