Method

1.Place the stock in a pan and bring to a simmer. Add the sugar, salt and soy sauce and mix well. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 2 minutes, then stir in the white spring onion parts. 2.Lightly beat the eggs with the sesame oil. Add to the pan in a very slow, thin stream. Using chopstick or fork, pull the egg slowly into strands. (Stirring the egg in a figure of eight works quite well.) Garnish and serve. Vegetarian option: replace the chicken stock with vegetable stock.
