You only need a few simple ingredients!

In a Dutch oven, combine 2 cups of vegetable broth, 2 tablespoons of soy sauce, and a teaspoon of fresh grated ginger. You’ll need 4 cups of chicken broth as well, but before you pour that into the Dutch oven, pour a little of it (about a third of a cup) into a little glass. Then pour the rest into the pot. Stir the contents of the pot together and bring it to a boil.

While that is heating up, whisk 2 eggs in a dish until smooth. Set it aside for a moment.

With the broth boiling, begin stirring it around in one direction, so that the liquid begins to swirl around the pot. While you are stirring, slowly drizzle the beaten egg into the soup. The egg will fan out and instantly cook in the broth. Add in a half teaspoon of white pepper. Turn off the heat.

Serve topped with slices green onions.
