The name Egg Flower Soup or Danhuatang in Mandarin comes from the fact that the egg spreads out like a flower when it’s poured into hot broth and cooks into these beautiful ribbons.

The traditional version is not thickened and is more of a broth, seasoned with white pepper and salt.

  • 4 cups chicken broth (store bought)
