1 eggs size large
2 cups chicken broth 500 mL

2 green onions/scallions, chopped
1 tbsp soy sauce 15 mL

Delicious soup. Very flavorful. I used extra snowpeas and no sprouts since I don't like them. Also added a little extra rice vinegar. It really makes all the difference. Fast and easy to make.

Ok, not amazingly tasty; Subbed bok choy instead of the bean sprouts. Though I beat the eggs a little too lightly and some big clumps formed... easily broken up with the ladle.
