Serves: 6

in the well-stirred cornstarch mixture until the soup thickens.
Add the Tabasco sauce. Stirring constantly, blend in the beaten

Taste the soup and adjust the vinegar, Tabasco, and soy sauce
combination to suite your taste. To serve, pour the steaming hot
soup in a serving bowl and add a dash of the sesame oil, then
sprinkle with the freshly cut scallions.
