Turkey tomato egg soup

Turkey tomato egg soup

This Turkey Mince Tomato Egg Soup is an inspiration from a couple who invited us for a lovely dinner recently. We were served this light, delicious soup with scallion (spring onion) pancakes. It was really delicious. It kept me thinking for days and I told myself I had to make it. My friend made this soup vegetarian but I added turkey mince as I had some leftover turkey mince from making turkey wantan for lunch. I made scallion pancakes to go with it too. They are such a beautiful combination. I must say my family fell in love with it at first taste!

I have been cooking this fabulous soup very frequently ever since. We think it’s such a wonderful soup to have before we go for sports. It is light and yet filling enough to last us through until the games are over.

It is very simple to cook this soup. You can omit the turkey mince if you like it vegetarian but I find the taste is not as good. Here’s my simple recipe to share:

Ingredients
turkey mince (ready marinated)
2 tomatoes (chopped)
2 spring onions (washed and chopped)
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
chicken stock granules
pepper

Frying the turkey mince

Frying the turkey mince

Heat up some fried ginger oil in a pot. Add the turkey mince and fry until fragrant. Pour in some boiling water, 2-3 cups. Add the tomatoes and spring onions. When it comes to a boil, pour in the beaten egg slowy, stirring as you pour. Turn of the fire and season according to your taste. Serve hot.

Tomato soup with veggie or meats are both comfort foods to me, though I have to admit that I bias toward the vegan type. Mary, looks like you have a big wok at home : ).

Tomato egg soup is the soup that I ate quite often when I was still a kid…next time I shall make them with some minced meat!

Never tried tomato in soup before. In fact, many of your recipes I haven’t tasted before. So when my mind turns blank, I’ll know which blog to go to!

I love soups with some tomatoes in it. There’s a soup where we use thin slices of pork tenderloin marinated in soy sauce, rice wine and potato starch and slap the meat against the bowl. And they are cook in hot stock before adding the tomatoes. Dad used to cook it for us. Hard question Mary. There are so many soups that I like. Just made cauliflower and sweet potato soup today. :)

so many options with turkey! I love too many kinds of soup. Too hard to pin down one. Oh yah.. Bakuteh!

That is a nice warming bowl of soup!

@tigerfish - In actually never know that tomatoes made such a lovely soup. Now I’m addicted to it :D

@TasteHongKong - Yes, I have big woks but I don’t really like to use them except sometimes for steaming. I love to use cooking pots and pans….not very Chinese :D

@Angie@Angie’s Recipes - So far I only fried tomatoes with eggs and coriander…what my dad taught us. Am so glad my friend taught me this soup….just so delicious :P

@cheah - In fact a lot of my recipes are new to myself :D Love to experiment. My family and friends are my real guinea pigs LOL

@Divina - Your dad is such an awesome cook. I wish I can taste some of his food. Did I hear sweet potato soup? Sounds very delicious. You know I will eat many bowls :D I don’t like cauliflower so maybe I’ll add bok choy…yum.

@penny aka jeroxie - I’m in the same boat as you….too many to choose :D I love bakuteh too. I cook that every week!

@3hungrytummies - Thank you very much.

@Leslie - Thanks very much for visiting. Have a nice day.

oh yum! this soup looks wonderful! I love the texture the egg adds!

rebecca  on February 3rd, 2010

oh wow great and healthy soup

Sushma Mallya  on February 3rd, 2010

soup looks nice,will try using chicken instead of turkey…

Mary  on February 3rd, 2010

@Simply Life - Thank you very much.

@Rebecca - Thank you very much.

@Sushma Mallya - Thank you very much. Chicken will be equally good.

Sarah Naveen  on February 3rd, 2010

Oh wow!!! that sounds wonderful And looks so comforting and yummy!! perfect for the weather here..

Stacy  on February 3rd, 2010

Looks so cozy and yummy, perfect for the season!

Chaya  on February 3rd, 2010

I can’t wait to make this. I have to make a change or two because I don’t have everything in the house. I have chopped chicken which I can substitute and I don’t have spring onions but again I can make do. I really do not want to wait.

If I can get it done in time for dinner, I will get back to you and let you know how it turned out.

Mary  on February 3rd, 2010

@Sarah Naveen - Thank you very much. Must be very cold on your side too. I have been cooking a lot of soup to keep warm :)

@Stacy - Totally agree with you that it is perfect for this freezing weather. Probably any soup is most welcoming for me at this time :D

@Chaya - I’m sure your soup will turn out very delicious. I have tried adding different ingredients and find that they tasted just as good as long as the tomatoes and eggs are there. I’m so excited to know what you add in :P

Jeannie  on February 3rd, 2010

Looks like a great soup for when you are feeling under the weather. Not easy to get minced turkey here so I’d substitute with minced pork or chicken if I cook this soup.

Natasha - 5 Star Foodie  on February 3rd, 2010

Sounds perfect on a snowy day! Yum!

Drick  on February 3rd, 2010

nice soup - the ginger oil must make such a difference, yes, I would certainly add the turkey, or chicken to this…wonderful Mary

Faith  on February 3rd, 2010

My mom used to make us egg soup all the time but I haven’t had it in years! Your version looks delicious with the turkey and veggies in it!

Roti n Rice  on February 3rd, 2010

This soup looks yummy! It will be great with some pickled vegetables and rice :)

Shirley  on February 3rd, 2010

Love this soup. I think you can easily get addicted to it.

kristy  on February 4th, 2010

This soup souunds terrific! It could really brings out the heavy meaty tomato flavour. A little bit of tangy and sweet and smells good. I usually do it with fish! Sounds funny huh!

Mary  on February 4th, 2010

@Jeannie - I’m sure pork and chicken are equally good. I don’t quite like the pork here cos it has a smell to it and ten they don’t sell chicken mince. Turkey mince is easily available here.

@Natasha - 5 Star Foodie - It has been snowing and freezing cold and this is one soup that I have been cooking a lot since I ate it at my friend’s place. Sometimes I add wine for a stronger warming effect.

@Drick - The ginger oil makes it warming. Have fun cooking!

@Faith - Give a try. I really like it. I love the tomatoes and egg combination.

@Roti n Rice - Thanks very much for the suggestion. I hope to find pickled vegetables here. Sounds very appetising.

@Shirley - You are very right….am already addicted to it :D

@kristy - Oh, I would love to try with fish. As long as there’s tomatoes, I know it will be very tasty. Thanks very much for suggestion.

noobcook  on February 4th, 2010

looks like it’s full of flavours :)

While we were unloading our groceries from the bag, my daughter accidentally broke 2 eggs. I immediately boiled 4 cups of chicken stock, added some celeries, carrots and peas and dried mushrooms and stirred both eggs in! It was what we needed during this chilly, rainy day!

Mary  on February 7th, 2010

@noobcook - It is and very delicious. My type of soup :)

@Malou@IMPROMPTU - Your soup must be colourful, light and delicious. That’s a quick one! I love it.
