Spinach and Soft Boiled Egg in Broth01

I was very glad to get some beautiful spinach sold at a bargain price. One of the best ways of cooking spinach is making soup. This no-brainer soup only takes 10 minutes to make. Nothing can be easier. How about the taste? It all depends on the soup base you choose. Chicken broth is a good choice, homemade or your favourite brand. If you want to use vegetable soup base, it’ll work too. The umami taste of the dried scallop will make your soup more delicious. The highlight is the soft boiled egg. Not only the runny egg yolk in the just-cooked egg white attracts your eye balls, but also it entertains your taste buds.

  • The cooking time of a shelled egg is much shorter. Beware it will turn hard very quickly. You may turn off the heat after adding the egg. Let it soak in the hot soup and get cooked to your liking.
  • As the power of every stove is very different, please adjust your stove power level and the amount of broth accordingly. Don’t ever let the soup dry up.
