  3. If you want your soup to have a thicker consistency dissolve the corn starch in the cup of cold water and add to the soup. When it has thickend some pour into the hot soup your beaten eggs slowly a little at a time in a circle and with the spoon mix one way only until you have poured all the eggs into the soup. Cover and simmer for about 3 minutes serve with diced scallions on top.
  4. The soup I have pictured above does not have the corn starch, or eggs in it because we are dieting. I assure you that the corn starch and the eggs give this soup a hearty and delicious flavor. Enjoy
