Egg Drop Soup
-------------
4 cups chicken broth or stock
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1-2 green onions, minced
1/4 teaspoon white pepper
Salt to taste
A few drops of oil (if desired)

In a wok or saucepan, bring the 4 cups of chicken broth to a boil. Add the 
white pepper and salt, and the sesame oil if using. 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.

**If you are preparing the soup for someone who is ill, try adding a slice 
of fresh, grated ginger. Among its many benefits, ginger is believed to be 
helpful in treating colds and flu.
