Egg Drop Soup

1/2 gallon water 
1 T chicken powder 
1 T garlic powder 
1 teaspoon sesame oil 
1 T soy sauce ( preference.. If you don't want it salty then add 1 t to start) 
1 bunch of green onion ( chopped) 
3 Roma tomato (cubed) 
1 teaspoon sugar 
1 teaspoon cornstarch ( mix with 1/2 C water) this will thicken the soup 

4 large eggs .. beaten (amount depends on how much eggs you like... I used 6 because my kids loves eggs) 

In a large pot pour in your 1/2 gallon water .. Chicken powder.. Garlic powder soy sauce and sugar.
(If you like you can chopped up onions and cook it at this time too.. My kids don't like onions so I omit this step) 
When water start to boiled slowly pour in your BEATEN EGGS ( as you are pouring the egg..continuously stirring the egg into the water) this step is very important because you want the egg to be mix and not clumped. 
Once you are done stirring in the egg.. Pour in your cornstarch mixture so the soup can thicken a little .. Reduce heat to medium low and cook for another 3-5 minutes then turn off stove) 

Last drizzle in your sesame oil. If you like it more salty.. Put a little more soy sauce..
Garnish with green onion and tomato slices and cracker black pepper 

*** you can also use chicken stock.. I didn't have any so I used water and chicken powder. 
If you have chicken stock then omit the chicken powder and reduce your soy sauce because the chicken broth is salty already. 

** if you like your broth to be a little yellow  put in 1/2 t turmeric  powder 
Or use 2 additional egg yolk ;) 
That is what I do sometimes too
