Egg Drop Soup

Egg Drop Soup

This dish was prepared for the subreddit, /r/52weeksofcooking, where the theme was "soup" and my extra theme had to have "eggs" in it. This was kind of a no brainer because I have been craving chinese food lately and I have not had a chance to indulge just yet. While this was pretty delicious, it was very basic so the next time I make it, definitely will add a protein like tofu and more chives or green onions.
The amount of salt will vary depending on how salty your broth is. I happened to use the full flavour better then bouillon for this which is pretty salty.
Also, the amount of cornstarch will depend on environmental factors
