What is Omelette Soup?

 

nyonya, recipe, easy, Chinese, Straits bornYes, you read right!. Omelette soup!



I was recently trying to recall some of the food that I  had in my childhood. And this soup came to my mind. We used to eat this regularly. It is easy to make, healthy and delicious. It is our food to go when my dad or brother came home and there was nothing much left on the table. They work late, you see. We had a service station and sometimes it got very busy.

You need only 1 ingredient ( disregarding the seasoning). Yes only 1. Of course, you can add more if you want. Adding leafy vegetables would make it a complete meal.

If I want a healthy and warm soup, with zero points, then this is one of the easiest comfort foods in my repertoire.

Here is the recipe.
