- 3 cups clear chicken broth

- 1 t. salt

- Wash and cut scallions into 1/8 [pcs]

- Add cornstarch slowly until it thickens gradually.
- Add scallion and mix few times.
- Gently stir in beat egg.
- Turn off heat immediately.
- Serve - Let each person add white pepper to his taste.
Tips: Soup can be made with chicken or beef broth. (In absence of either, I use boullion cubes). It is important turn heat off immediately after egg is stirrd in, so that egg will float like a cloud to surface. (Scallions are fairly large so 3-4 green onions would probably be about right).
