Ingredients You'll Need

3 ounces Thai-style rice noodles (pad Thai)
4 cups boiling water
1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
1 large clove garlic, peeled
1 1 1/2 to 2-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled
1/4 cup natural brown sugar
1/4 cup nonhydrogenated peanut butter
1 cup water
1 teaspoon lime juice
3 tablespoons low-sodium tamari
4 ounces broccoli rabe
4 eggs


Directions

Place noodles in a large bowl and cover with boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain, return to bowl, and toss with 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil.



2. Place garlic and ginger in a food processor; process until minced. Add brown sugar, peanut butter, water, lime juice, and tamari; blend thoroughly.



3. Trim and discard tough lower stems from broccoli rabe; chop remaining rabe. Warm a large skillet and add remaining 1 tablespoon sesame oil. Toss rabe into warm oil and cook briefly, until bright. Add noodles and distribute evenly with greens. Pour peanut sauce into skillet. Bring to a slow boil. Open eggs one at a time on top of noodle mixture. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and cook until eggs are poached and liquid is reduced by about half, 7 to 9 minutes. Serve immediately.
