DIRECTIONS

  • Add noodle to a pot filled with boiling water.
  • Stir and,as soon as water begins to boil again, add 1/2 cup of the cold water.
  • Bring back to a boil and add remainder of cold water.
  • Cook noodles until al dente, rinse under lukewarm water and drain.
  • Very thinly, diagonally slice enough of the leeks to equal about 2 Tbsp., using the white part only.
  • Add chicken broth, soy sauce, mirin, sugar and salt to the pot and bring to a boil.
  • Divide noodles among 4 oven proof bowls.
  • Add the sliced leeks to the noodles and pour the hot broth over.
  • Break an egg in the center of each bowl and bake in a preheated 350°F [180°C] oven for a few minutes, just enough to cook the egg.
  • Garnish with sliced green part of leeks and sprinkle with pepper.
