Strange things in Soup!

I recently visited a friend who was making vegetable soup - nothing too strange there - until - after she had run it through the blender, put it back into the saucepan - she added a raw egg, whisked it it in, and left it to simmer.

I would never have thought of adding an egg to soup - have any of you ever done it?

Have to admit it tasted delicious.

Re: Strange things in Soup!

What was the egg for Tabs?
Is it supposed to help thicken the soup?
Can you see it, like do you see pieces of scrambled egg in the soup?

Re: Strange things in Soup!

I have seen this before and trying to think where.....


.... It might have been in Chinese noodle soup. I used to make it many years ago and I'm sure I used to add a raw egg.

The Chinese often add raw egg to Chicken & sweetcorn soup.

That's it Twink. That's what I was thinking of. The egg sort of swims around in there.

Silver Tabs, I've had the Chinese eggdrop soup.

Glad to hear it was an egg that concerned you....I had visions of raw octopus or such going into the blender, then the pot.

My sister used to make a Greek chicken soup and stirred a raw egg into it at the end. It was delicious, wish I still had the recipe.

She said it was to 'enrich' the soup and, no, there were no bits floating about because she whisked it in.

Thanks for your comments everyone. Not so strange as I thought then. It certainly tasted good. Might give it a try myself next time I make soup.

Re: Strange things in Soup!

I expect it gives it a bit of a custardy texture.
