  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 4 cups chicken broth you could also use vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger

  • sriracha to taste, optional, but really delicious (we used 1 tablespoon)
  • 4 large eggs whisked
  • Green onions optional for garnish

  • Bring to a simmer, whisking occasionally.
  • Once simmering, whisk eggs in bowl, then slowly pour (while whisking) into the hot soup.
  • The hot soup cooks the eggs immediately.
