ADD oil to a pot and fry ginger, garlic and chilli flakes until fragrant. Add carrots, miso, chicken stock, mushrooms and soy sauce, and simmer for 30 minutes.


COOK the noodles for 5 minutes in boiling water, drain and toss in a little bit of oil so they don’t stick together. Cook eggs for 5 minutes, until soft-boiled, then drain.



PAT meat dry and then rub with the spices.


ADD oil to an extremely hot pan. Fry the pork for 8 minutes, turning once. Allow to rest before slicing.


IN THE MORNING, place the broth and noodles in one container and the toppings in another. Assemble at work.
