  • 4 cups Chicken broth Low sodium
  • 1 tbsp Soy sauce
  • 1/2-1 tsp Ginger powder
  • 1/2 tsp Garlic powder
  • Salt To taste
  • Pepper To taste
  • 2 tbsp Cornstarch Dissolved in 2 tbsp water
  • 2 Eggs Large, Beaten
  • 4-5 tbsp Green onions Roughly chopped
  • 1/2 tsp Sesame oil Optional


  • In a large nonstick pot, add broth, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, salt, pepper and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
  • Add dissolved cornstarch slurry and mix.
  • Lower the heat to medium. 
  • Add the beaten eggs slowly and gently stir to make ribbons of cooked egg. 
  • Add green onions, sesame oil (optional) and mix. 
  • Turn off heat and serve immediately. 


  • Read all my tips above.
  • Tastes best when served immediately and I don't recommend reheating leftovers. If you really must, you can store leftover soup in a sealed container in the fridge for 1 day and heat in the microwave but the texture will not be the same and silky smooth.
