  1. Using an 8-qt dutch oven, bring 8 cups of fat-free chicken broth to a simmer.
  2. Add the soy sauce, mushrooms and chile paste and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  3. Add the vinegar, julienned bamboo shoots, sliced water chestnuts, and tofu and simmer for an additional 10 minutes.
  4. In a separate container, mix the 3 Tbsp of cornstarch with the remaining 2 cups of broth.
  5. When cornstarch and broth are throughly combined, STIR in the cornstarch mixture into your hot soup (WARNING: Do this SLOWLY as the cornstarch has a tendency to clump once it makes contact with the hot soup).
  6. Bring back to simmer and then pour the Egg Beaters thinly over the soup to create an egg drop soup effect.
