View Full Version : Chinese Sweetcorn Soup

Dec 5th, 2007, 10:04 PM
Does anybody have a recipe for it? I absolutely adore it... drizzled with soy sauce mmmmmm...

Normally the only time i can have it is at chinese restaurents who offer a vegetarian version, and i ask them to leave out the egg.

But i would love to be able to make my own as i cant really afford to be going to restaurents for the sake of a soup lol! plus i am sometimes dubious about whether it truly is egg free...

Any help would be much appreciated :)
