Yield:
6 servings

Ingredients
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons canola or corn oil
  • 2 medium tomatoes, cored and cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1/2 cup minced scallions, white part only
  • 3 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 3/4 cup rice wine or sake
  • 5 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 pound snow peas, ends snapped and veiny strings removed
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch mixed with 6 tablespoons water
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten with 2 tablespoons water
Directions

Heat a heavy soup pot over high heat, add the oil, and heat until hot, about 20 seconds. Add the tomatoes and scallions, and stir-fry until fragrant, about 15 seconds. Add the soy sauce and rice wine or sake, and stir-fry over high heat for 20 seconds. Add the water and salt, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 2 minutes, skimming the surface to remove any impurities. Add the snow peas and stir.

Slowly add the cornstarch mixture and bring the liquid to a boil, stirring to prevent lumps from forming. Once slightly thickened, remove from the heat and slowly add the beaten eggs, pouring them in a thin stream around the edge of the pot. Carefully stir once or twice so that the eggs form thin streamers. Taste for seasoning and ladle into serving bowls.
