I didn't know this was so easy to make! I've always loved it in Chinese restaurants, now I can have at home!

Excellent and easy. Made this for my Poppie who has stage 4 liver cancer and is rapidly losing his appetite and strength. Very difficult to get most foods down him, but he lapped this up! Used low-sodium broth since he can't have too much salt, pinch less soy sauce (the salt again), a hefty squeeze of lemon juice, as that is supposed to increase the appetite and help with dry mouth, and used chives from my garden instead of green onions for less "mouth feel." Also added a pinch of turmeric for color and health properties. Thanks so much for this. It was a real treat for him and he doesn't get those much anymore.
