Soba Noodle Bowls with Spinach and Poached Eggs

I absolutely love soba noodles, and these bowls with spinach and poached eggs are the perfect way to enjoy them! The noodles are nice and chewy, and the eggs add a delicious richness. The spinach is a great addition too, adding some healthy greens to the mix. I always feel so satisfied after eating one of these bowls, and they’re pretty easy to make too!


  • -2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • -6 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • -1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • -2 to 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • -1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil (plus more for garnish)
  • -Kosher salt, to taste
  • -4 large eggs
  • 8 ounces soba (buckwheat) noodles -2 cups (3 ounces) packed fresh baby spinach leaves -6 scallions, thinly sliced (for garnish) -4 teaspoons sesame seeds (for garnish)


1. Fill a wide saucepan with 2 inches of generously salted water and bring to a boil. Add the vinegar, and adjust the heat to a gentle simmer.

2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan over medium heat, bring the stock to a boil. Add the ginger, garlic, sesame oil and salt to taste. Adjust the heat to a gentle simmer, cover, and let it cook while you poach the eggs. This gives the flavors time to mingle.

3. Line a tray or plate with a paper towel. Adjust the heat under the poaching water so that it’s at a very gentle simmer. Crack 1 egg into a small bowl or measuring cup; hold rim of bowl or cup as close as possible to surface of water; gently tip egg into water; rapidly repeat with remaining eggs (you should have 4). Set timer for 2 minutes to time poaching; stir pot gently by dragging wooden spoon around edge of pot just enough so eggs release from bottom but don’t bob up too much on top of water (they should retain their shape), using slotted spoon transfer eggs from water as they’re done onto paper towel-lined plate/tray–cover lightly with second paper towel if necessary (this will keep them
