    rosie316's Note:

    I've found it easier (and cheaper) to make Chinese food at home. No more waiting for the delivery driver to bring you cold food, no more waiting to be served in a restaurant, no more tipping. This is one of many Chinese recipes that I prepare, and we feast at home for a fraction of the price. The best part is, we know it is going to be good. I hope you enjoy this one of my many "stay at home" Chinese dishes.

    2. 2
      Meanwhile, trim roots/tips and remove outer layer of scallions. Slice the scallions (white and green portions) to approximately 1/8 thick slices.
    3. 3
      Combine the cornstarch with the cold water and mix well (no lumps).
    4. 4
      Slowly add cornstarch mixture to the boiling broth while constantly stirring to desired consistency. (you may not need it all). Stir while boiling for 2 minutes.
    5. 5
      Reduce heat to a low boil, add white pepper and then "drizzle" the beaten eggs "slowly" into the broth while stirring constantly. The eggs should be forming into small streams of ribbons. Continue to gently boil 1 minute.

      Remove pan from heat and add the sliced scallions to the soup.
    7. 7
      Serve the soup immediately, stirring the pot before each serving is dished.

      So simple yet so good, I was able to cut this down to a very satisfying dinner for one. Might try adding just a very tiny bit of ginger.<br/>Thanks for the post.
