DIRECTIONS

  • In a large sauce pot, bring the chicken broth and soy sauce to a boil over medium high heat. Boil for 2 minutes. Taste and add more soy if needed.
  • Meanwhile, trim roots/tips and remove outer layer of scallions. Slice the scallions (white and green portions) to approximately 1/8 thick slices.
  • Combine the cornstarch with the cold water and mix well (no lumps).
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Serve the soup immediately, stirring the pot before each serving is dished.
  • Enjoy!
