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 tsp soy sauce. Dark sesame oil is a must - use about 3 drops. This is a quick delicious meal for one. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

I added quite a few more veggies, but in small amounts, one thinly sliced mushroom, a few thin slices of carrots and celery. I par-boiled the carrots and celery in the chicken broth, added the sesame oil and peas. I also added a dash or two of soy sauce. It was pretty good, but for me, it was still just a little bland. I will keep making this and playing with small additions. Read More
