  1. Bring the chicken broth, white pepper, and sesame oil to a boil in a saucepan. While stirring slowly in one direction to get the soup moving, pour the beaten egg into the soup in a slow but steady stream. Gently stir in the peas. Ladle into serving bowls; sprinkle with green onion to serve.

Love the secret ingredient – peas. I now make this regularly, but do a couple of things differently - personal preference. I use 1 egg plus 2 egg whites, 2 scallions instead of 1. I also add ½ tsp soy sauce. Dark sesame oil is a must - use about 3 drops. This is a quick, delicious meal for one.

It's an okay recipe. I didn't like the sesame oil. Otherwise it was a nice meal.

Delicious and perfect. I just added a bit of soy sauce at the end. Thank you!

This soup is fantastic! I did take some of the suggestions and added a bit of soy and extra green onions as well as egg white. I also put a little chili sauce in my own bowl for a little kick. My husband raved about it! Even my 7 year old thought it was great. Easy, quick and tasty! Oh and South Beach friendly!

I like this recipe. For my taste I had to season it up a little more but all in all it's a very good recipe. I added more pepper, a bit of garlic salt more green onion and just a bit of diced (very small) carrots and doubled the peas. Once in the serving bowls just a dash of Huy Fong Foods Garlic Chili Sauce. This stuff is awesome! I was first introduced to it in one of my favorite Chinese restaurants. Can be bought at most groceries.

I loved this! I would give it 6 stars, but the men didn't like it as much. They like the thick bulky soups better.

Delicious soup with a bit of low sodium soy sauce added in.
