Instant Pot Egg Drop Soup

Satisfying smooth Egg Drop Soup becomes ever convenient with the Instant Pot. The secret to fresh tasing soup that will be a hit is homemade chicken broth. Piping hot straight out of the IP; the green onions blend harmoniously with the egg filled chicken broth to create a rich and silky soup. Serve this on a cold night to hear the family gladly slurping from their spoons. The egg drop soup is simple to make and is an awesome compliment to almost any entree.

Forget the Chinese take-out and make this yourself at home. Kids, spouse, family and friends will enjoy this fresh savory soup.

One of the benefits of cooking the soup in the IP is that you can keep it warm all day long and eat it whenever you are ready.
