Bring to boil (save spring onion for the last step)
Mix 3 teaspoons cornstarch with 3 teaspoons water to create a paste (used to thicken the soup)
Cook on the stove.

Remove the froth from the soup so it is clear
Check the taste. Add salt if needed. Add pepper and sesame seed oil if desired

If you want to add egg, beat the egg in a bowl and bring the soup to a boil; then set to simmer
