Quick and Easy Dinner!
Are you looking for something super simple to make tonight? Something that your kids might actually EAT that won't break the bank and looks like way more work than it actually takes? Well, considering doing what I'm doing tonight for dinner. Here's the recipe.
Chinese Egg Drop Soup (non-traditional)
1 Tablespoon Cornstarch
2 Cans Chicken Broth
1/2 Cup Frozen Mixed Japanese or Oriental Style vegetables
Put the cornstarch into a microwave safe 1 1/2 quart container and add the broth SLOWLY while stirring to incorporate evenly (avoids lumps). Stir in the frozen veggies and cover container.
Microwave on high 3 minutes. Stir. Return to microwave and microwave on high 4 additional minutes or until everything is nice and steamy hot and the veggies are done.
Meanwhile, beat egg in small bowl.
Remove soup from microwave and add egg and stir once (don't overstir or you won't end up with any "egg drops" in your soup...you'll just end up with some egg ADDED to your soup.
Ladle into bowls. Serves 4.
Dinner in 10 minutes. Sweet Deal. And since it's done in the microwave, have your kids help you out. Cooking with kids is important and will help them survive later in life =).
