This warm egg drop soup is suitable for serving as an appetizer, especially during the Chinese New Year Eve’s reunion dinner. The sweetness from the corn kernel and umami flavour from the white shitake mushroom would boost its the soup’s savoury flavour. The white shiitake mushroom contains beta-glucan that is good for our heart health and it is known to regulate blood cholesterol. Lastly, it is thickened by organic potato starch which will further provide the richness of the soup. In addition, organic potato starch is the great substitute to replace the conventional cornstarch, it is gluten-free and free from GMO. This is an ideal dish for your family members especially during this festive season.
