Grandma's Chinese Chive and Egg Soup

Grandma's Chinese Chive and Egg Soup

The Chinese chive is wrapped in the egg, so even people who aren't fond of chives can slurp this up.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Chinese chives
about 10 g
☆ Water
2 cups (400 ml)
☆ Dashi stock granules
1 teaspoon
☆ Salt
1/2 teaspoon
Soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon


1. Chop up the chives roughly. Beat the egg and add the chives, and mix very well. (The chives don't need to be pre-cooked.)
2. Add the ☆ ingredients to a pan and bring a boil. When it comes to a boil, add the soy sauce, and taste. Add salt if you think it needs it.
3. Put in the egg-chive mixture into the boiling soup 1 tablespoon at a time. Try to you add the spoonfuls as if you're trying to float them on the surface of the liquid.
4. If it turns out like this, with the egg floating in the clear soup, it's just perfect!

Story Behind this Recipe

When my mother in law made this for me I was amazed!
My daughter doesn't like cooked eggs or greens, and she can only eat chives when they're in gyoza dumplings, but even she eats this soup up and says it's delicious. It seems she likes it because she can just slurp up the egg and chive together!
