  • Prep time: 5 Minutes|Cook time: 15 Minutes|Total time: 20 Minutes



Cut your green onions, bamboo shoots, and mushroom into thin slices.
Add the broth, soy sauce, rice vinegar, chili sauce (or sriracha), mushrooms, bamboo shoots, and white pepper to a pan and bring it to a boil.
Lower the heat, cover, and let it simmer for 3-5 minutes.
In a medium bowl, beat your egg with the teaspoon of water to thin it out. (This prevents big clumps)
Stir the soup to get the contents spinning and drizzle in your beaten egg. Continue to stir gently. This will give you satisfying little ribbons of egg!
In a small bowl, whisk together the cold water and corn starch.
Pour this slurry mix into the soup and let it thicken.
Serve topped with green onions!
