Egg Drop Soup is traditionally Chinese. Tomatoes are not. They were
introduced less than 100 years ago, but nevertheless, they work wonderfully
in this soup.

PUT THE CHICKEN STOCK into a pot and bring to a simmer. If using fresh
tomatoes, peel, seed and cut into 1-inch cubes. If using canned tomatoes,
chop them into small chunks. Lightly beat the eggs, then combine them with
sesame oil in a small bowl. Add the light soy sauce and salt to the
simmering stock, and stir to mix them in well. Add the tomatoes and simmer
for 5 minutes. Next, stir in the scallions, and then add the egg mixture in
a very slow, thin stream. Using a chopstick or fork, pull the egg slowly
into strands. (Stirring the egg in a "figure 8" works well.) Garnish with
the finely chopped scallion tops. Makes 4 to 6 Servings
