When I was a kid I can remember my mom making us Egg Drop Soup. It was one of my favorite things she'd make for us. It was no wonder that when I found myself teaching English in northern China and found that soup is almost always part of a celebratory meal. They were often clear broth soups with egg drops or veggies and occasionally some kind of meat. The Chinese are wonderfully diverse in their cooking and I tried many different kinds of food while there. This simple recipe is the closest I've found to some of the soups I ate while living in China.
