tips & techniques
Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:
1 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce:

Fill a medium pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Cut off and discard the root end of the bok choy; thinly slice crosswise. Peel the carrots and grate on the large side of a box grater. Combine in a large bowl. In a separate large bowl, whisk together the tahini, soy-miso sauce, demi-glace, 2 tablespoons of water, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. 

Marinate the vegetables:
2 Marinate the vegetables:

To the bowl of prepared bok choy and carrots, add the sesame oil and vinegar; season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat. Set aside to marinate,  stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.

Cook the eggs:
3 Cook the eggs:

While the vegetables marinate, carefully add the eggs to the pot of boiling water. Cook 6 to 7 minutes for soft-boiled, or until your desired degree of doneness. Leaving the pot of water boiling, using a slotted spoon or tongs, transfer the eggs to a strainer and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to stop the cooking process. Carefully peel the cooked eggs; season with salt and pepper. 

Cook the noodles:
4 Cook the noodles:

Add the noodles to the same pot of boiling water, stirring gently to separate. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until tender. Drain thoroughly and rinse under cold water 30 seconds to 1 minute to cool the noodles and prevent sticking. 

Finish the noodles & serve your dish:
5 Finish the noodles & serve your dish:

Prepare as directed, except leave the cooked eggs unpeeled. Transfer the finished noodles to an airtight container; cover and refrigerate. Transfer the cooked eggs to a separate airtight container. Cool, uncovered, then cover and refrigerate. When ready to serve, peel the cooked eggs; season with salt and pepper. Add 2 tablespoons of hot water to the finished noodles; stir to loosen the noodles (if they’re still sticking together, add up to 2 additional tablespoons of hot water). Serve as directed in Step 5. Enjoy!
