  • Egg Drop Soup
    4 cups broth or stock
    2 eggs, lightly beaten
    1 -2 green onions, minced
    1/4 teaspoon white pepper
    soy sauce to taste
    A few drops of sesame oil
    In a wok or saucepan, bring the 4 cups of broth to a boil. Add the white pepper and soy sauce, and the sesame oil. Cook for about another minute. Very slowly pour in the eggs in a steady stream. To make shreds, stir the egg rapidly in a clockwise direction for one minute. To make thin streams or ribbons, gently stir the eggs in a clockwise direction until they form. Garnish with green onion and serve.
    Variations
    These would all be added after the seasonings.
    After adding, let the soup cook for a few more minutes and then add the beaten egg.
    * 1 teaspoon of cornstarch mixed with 2 teaspoons of water. Stir until thickened.
    **1/2 cup frozen peas.
    **If you are preparing the soup for someone who is ill, try adding a slice of fresh, grated ginger.
