Chicken, Spinach, and Potato

Spinach Soup Chinese recipe

I was pretty much floored the first time I saw a friend of mine make egg drop soup. I mean, who knew that making the popular Chinese appetizer basically just involved heating up a lightly spiced broth and stirring in beaten eggs in a steady stream until they cook into delicate ribbons?

Millions and millions of people, apparently. I guess I’m just a bit slow on the uptake.

Most egg drop soups are far from filling, however, so in an attempt to make this into something of a one-dish meal I used more eggs than usual as well as a substantial amount of spinach. The spinach wilts down to far less than its original volume but still provides plenty of bulk and a nutritional boost.

Yield: 4 servings

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 5 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


* 5 cups chicken broth
* 3 cups packed baby spinach leaves
* 3/4 teaspoon Asian sesame oil
* 3/4 teaspoon Vietnamese fish sauce
* 3 well beaten eggs
* salt
* 1/4 cup thinly sliced green onion


Bring the chicken to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir in the spinach leaves, sesame oil, and fish sauce and cook until the spinach begins to wilt.

Stir the mixture until the broth is quickly swirling around the saucepan. Slowly and carefully pour in the eggs, continuing to stir the broth with your other hand. The eggs should cook upon contact with the broth and create ribbons. Taste and add salt, if necessary.
