1 eggs size large
2 cups vegetable 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
1 tbsp soy sauce 15 mL
1/2 tsp rice vinegar 2.5 mL
1 tsp gingerroot, grated 4 g
ground pepper to taste [optional]


  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.
  4. Keep the liquid simmering for the next step: while stirring the broth slowly in one direction, gradually add the egg(s) in a steady stream. The egg(s) will coagulate and feather.
  5. Remove from heat. Season with rice vinegar. Garnish each bowl with chopped green onions and serve.
