Egg drop fusion consommé
Egg drop fusion consommé, done from a bouillon, stock or broth, organic homemade kombu stock or from an instant base in your pantry, it is perfect for your home-made soup ready in few minutes, low calories and healthy nutrients rich.
In Japan, instant stock cubes or granules are called consommé or bouillon and are sold at most supermarkets. These are prepared by simply adding hot water to make an instant soup broth. Some brands helpfully label their products to guide shoppers, but in other cases, it is not always obvious what you are buying.
I prefer to use homemade stock, to be sure to have the herbs without an additive.
