Egg drop fusion consommé
Egg drop fusion consommé is made 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 a few minutes. It is low in calories and rich in healthy nutrients.
In Japan, instant stock cubes or granules are called consommé or bouillon and are sold at most supermarkets.
The goal is to obtain an instant soup by simply adding hot water.
Some brands helpfully label their products to guide shoppers, but in other cases, it is not always obvious what you are buying and this is not acceptable.
I prefer to use homemade stock, to be sure to have the herbs without any additive.

Kombu seaweed contains glutamic acids, which are the basis of Umami.
Combining Kombu with inosinic acids from meats or bonito flakes, along with guanylic acids from shiitake mushrooms, makes the synergy of Umami; each acid bringing out the best flavors in the others. The secret to great cooking lies in combining Umami.
