  • Once you've removed the tofu from the pan, add the kale and saute for a couple minutes. Return the tofu to the pan and cover with the broth. Cook on medium 2-3 minutes, turn the tofu and cook another 2-3 minutes
  • Slice the eggs into 3 pieces each, split the ramen noodles between 2 bowls, with 3-4 tofu pieces, half the kale each and 3 egg pieces each. Drizzle with sriracha and remaining sauce, sprinkle on sesame seeds.

Notes

The sauce can be prepared in bulk, but if you're doing it just for this dish then you're gonna have 4 pots going at once if you want everything to time out right.
