Can be served made with Brown Rice instead of the Soba Noodle
Put the soba noodles in a saucepan of boiling water. It will take about seven minutes to cook them (but follow the package directions), and you need to have everything else ready. Rinse and drizzle with Sesame Oil so they don't stick together.
Trim the bottom of the broccoli stems. Add to Steamer pot, sprinkle Umami on the Broccoli, cover and Steam the until almost tender (2-4 minutes, depending on thickness).
Meanwhile, heat half the oil in a skillet and gently sauté the ginger, chile, red pepper and garlic until the garlic is pale gold.
Add the soy sauce, and Smoked Maple Syrup.
Drain the noodles and add them to the pan, add 1/4 cup of the Soba water.
Toss in the baby broccoli and the white part of scallions.
In another small skillet, quickly sauté the egg in the remaining oil.
Put the noodles and broccoli into a bowl and slide the egg on top.
Sprinkle with black sesame seeds, Korean Chili and sliced scallion green part and serve immediately.
