Ingredients

Egg(s)

2 medium, lightly beaten

Frozen corn

½ cup(s), thawed, (80g)

Green shallot(s)

2 individual, thinly sliced, white and green parts separated

Chicken stock cube

2 individual, gluten-free variety, (to make 2 cups (500ml) chicken stock)

Cornflour

3 tsp

Ground ginger

½ tsp

Garlic powder or flakes

¼ tsp, (powder)

Sesame oil

½ tsp

Instructions

  1. Combine stock, cornflour, ginger and garlic powder in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, whisking occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until it comes to a simmer.
  2. Whisk stock to create a whirlpool, then very slowly pour in the eggs, whisking constantly in a circular motion to create egg ribbons. When eggs are cooked, remove soup from heat and stir in corn, white parts of the shallots and oil. Season with salt and pepper. Divide into 2 bowls and sprinkle with the green parts of shallots to serve.
