Moon viewing Japanese noodles

Method

  • Bring the stock to the boil in a large heavy-bottomed pot and then add the carrots, soy, Schichimi, sugar and spring onions. Mix well, cook for a few minutes and taste for seasoning.
  • At the same time, soak the noodles in hot water until they separate. Drain well.
  • Heat a thin layer of water in a wok (or large non-stick pan), add the vinegar and swirl well with a spoon. Then carefully add the eggs and cook.
  • To serve, share the noodles between four bowls, then pour in the stock and top with a poached egg (or egg yolk).
  • nb. Traditionally only the egg yolk is added.
