•Fine salt

•5 ounces whole wheat udon noodles

•1 grated zucchini (same seasoning as below)

1 grated carrot (same seasoning as below)

12 shrimp (seasoned with red pepper and garlic powder with salt and pepper)

•1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

•1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce

•4-5 garlic clove, minced or finely grated

•1 tablespoon crushed red pepper flakes

•3 tablespoons vegetable oil

•Freshly cracked black pepper (optional)

Steps

1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil, add the noodles and cook according to package directions; drain.

2. Saute the veggies and the shrimp (after the veggies).

3. While the bok choy steams, in a large heat-proof bowl, whisk together the sesame oil, chili oil, sesame seeds, soy sauce, garlic and crushed red pepper flakes until combined.

4. In a small saucepan over medium heat, or in a microwave-safe bowl, heat the vegetable oil until shimmering, about 2 minutes on the stove or about 45 seconds on HIGH in the microwave. Pour the hot vegetable oil over the sesame oil mixture and whisk until fully combined. Add the noodles, shrimp and veggies, and toss until each strand is well-coated.

5. Make poached eggs and create bowls with noodle mixture.
