Course: Soup
Cuisine: Asian
Servings: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 L chicken stock or bone broth (4 cups)
  • 1 tsp ginger - finely grated 
  • 3 clove/s garlic - finely grated  or minced
  • 1 cob/s corn - kernels cut from the cob (as is, or minced in a food processor)
  • 1 tbsp tamari
  • 1 free-range or organic egg/s - beaten
  • 4 spring onion/s - sliced thinly
  • ¼ tsp white pepper - to taste
  • Sea salt - to taste
  • 1 tsp cornflour - mixed with 2 tablespoons of water (or arrowroot)

Optional extras

  • Chicken - cooked and diced or shredded (for more protein or to make this a Chicken and Sweet Corn Soup)
  • 50 g shiitake mushrooms - sliced (great for an immune boost)
  • ½ bunch/s fresh coriander leaves - chopped (great detoxifier)
  • 1 red chilli/s - finely sliced

Instructions

  • In a small pot, place your broth, ginger, garlic and corn (plus optional chicken or mushrooms) and simmer gently for 5 minutes.
  • Stir in the tamari, taste and add more sea salt if required. If you would like a thicker soup, add the cornflower mix at this point and stir through well. Personally, I'm happy with a clear soup.
  • With the soup at a slow simmer, stir to make a whirlpool and slowly drizzle the egg so ribbons form.

Serve

  • Serve with the spring onions, white pepper (and optional coriander or red chilli).

Make-ahead

  • Re-heat in a pot over a low heat until just hot.

Store

  • Store in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.

Notes

Vegetarian

Use vegetable stock as your base.

Add more vegetables

I'm always up for more vegetables - you can really add in whatever vegetables take your fancy.

Soy-free

Replace the tamari with liquid or coconut aminos.

Egg-free
