Crab Stick and Asparagus Soup

This recipe reminds me of a Chinese-style egg drop soup with canned asparagus and chunks of tender crab. I used to eat this kind of soup in my hometown, and typically people enjoy it on special occasions, like wedding or anniversaries.

I made this on a whim one Sunday when I had leftover crab sticks in my fridge and  fresh asparagus was on sale at the local market. It comes together fantastically simple, and is very tasty with the egg drop, so it makes any meal feel just a little more special. I love to make this recipe with fresh asparagus when they are in peak season and the price drops so I can eat all the asparagus as much as I can hold, but of course you can replace with canned asparagus.

Steps

1
Done

Rinse the asparagus spears under cool water to remove any grit. Peel the outer skin away with a vegetable peeler if you have thick asparagus.
Cut the asparagus stalks and boil in a large pot with boiling water for about 5-10 minutes, depends how thick the asparagus is.

2
Done

Pour the chicken stock in and let it boil for about 5 minutes.
Slice the crab stick and transfer into the pot. Stir constantly for a couple minutes on medium heat.

3
Done

To make the slurry, mix the cornstarch together with 2 Tablespoon water until smooth.
Stir in the cornstarch slurry gradually until the soup is the desired consistency.

4
Done

In a small bowl, whisk the eggs. Drizzle egg a little at a time into the boiling soup. Egg should cook immediately.
Season with salt and white pepper.

5
Done

Sprinkle with fresh chives, and serve immediately when it's hot.
