1 eggs size large    
2 cups chicken broth   500 mL
6 tbsp snow peas, cut into 1 cm pieces   35 g
5 tbsp soybean sprouts   20 g
2 green onions/scallions, chopped   30 g
1 tbsp soy sauce, low-sodium   15 mL
1/2 tsp rice vinegar   2.5 mL
1 tsp gingerroot, grated   4 g
  ground pepper to taste    


  1. In a bowl, beat the egg(s) lightly. Add some pepper. Set aside.
  2. Heat the broth in a saucepan. Add the soy sauce, grated ginger, and bring to a boil.
  3. Add the snow peas, cut into 1 cm pieces, and the soya sprouts. Cook over medium heat 2-3 min until the vegetables are tender.
