This was really good as is. I didn't have any white pepper so I substituted regular black pepper and it turned out just fine.
I wasn't able to get all of the oats out of the liquid, but it wasn't that big of a deal.

I used Better Than Bullion's vegetable base, but I think next time I'm going to try and use Not-Chik'n Bullion Cubes... I think traditional egg drop soup is made with chicken broth, so maybe it will taste more authentic?

Sure cured my craving for it!



This was really good!

I am glad to find a vegan version of egg drop soup. A pinch of termeric can be used for a more yellow colour. Also, tiny pieces of tofu could go well with it also.
