3 tbsp Tahini (for dressing)
1/4 tbsp Soy sauce, tamari (for dressing)
3/4 tbsp Sesame oil (for dressing)
1/2 tsp Honey (for dressing)
1 clove(s) Garlic (minced, for dressing)
1 tbsp Water (warm, for dressing)
1 pinch Salt (for dressing)
50 gm Japanese noodles, soba, dry
1 stalk(s) Green onion (thinly sliced)
1/2 cup Kimchi
3 mushroom(s) Shiitake mushroom, dried (sliced)
1 cup Kale (stems removed, chopped)
1 medium egg Egg
1/2 tsp Sesame seeds (for garnish)
1/2 tsp Extra virgin olive oil
1 dash Salt and pepper


For the Sesame Dressing: Throw it all in a mason jar and shake.

For the Perfect Soft Boiled Egg: Boil enough water to submerge your egg or eggs in a small pot. When the water is at a rolling boil, slowly and carefully lower the eggs into the pot with a spoon. This is to make sure they don’t crack when they hit bottom. Boil the eggs for 6 minutes and immediately dump the boiling water and let cold water run on the eggs for a few minutes. When they are cool enough to handle, peel the eggs super carefully. Set aside.

For the Kale: Heat a little bit of olive oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Sauté the kale lightly for about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Remove from pan before the kale wilts. Set aside.

For the Shiitakes: Heat a little more olive oil in the same pan over medium-high heat. Add in the shiitakes in one layer. Do not crowd the pan so that the mushrooms sear properly and don’t steam. Season with salt & pepper. Sear for about 2 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and set aside.

For the Soba Noodles: Boil according to package instructions. Drain. While the noodles are still hot, toss with 4 tablespoons of the sesame dressing. Season with salt.

For the Bowl: Arrange the noodles in the middle of the bowl and then artfully place the kale, mushrooms, kimchi, scallions, and egg on top. Cut the egg in half and admire… Then season the egg with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the sesame seeds on top, drizzle a bit more dressing on the noodles.
