Cook the Ramen and Egg: Follow the instructions on the package to cook the ramen. Once cooked, drain and set aside to cool. If you used a pot on the stove to cook the ramen, use that same water to poach the eggs. Bring the water to a simmer and using a spoon, create a whirlpool in the center. Gently crack one egg into the whirlpool and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the white has set. Lift the egg out with a slotted spoon and set aside to cool. Repeat for the other egg.
Make the Salad: Chop the bok choy leaves into inch-wide ribbons. Place in a bowl and add in sesame oil and sea salt. Mix and gently massage the leaves to soften.
Make the Sauce: In a small jar, add in KARUNA’S BOOST, almond butter, honey, chili oil, sesame oil, ginger powder, garlic powder, sesame seeds, and sea salt. Stir until well combined or cap the jar and shake well.
Assemble: Once the ramen in cool, separate into two servings and transfer to plates. For garnish: drizzle on sesame oil and chili oil, sprinkle on green onions and sesame seeds, and add the egg on top. Plate the bok choy salad and serve sauce in a small dish by the side.
To Eat: Drizzle the sauce onto the ramen and break the yolk of the egg to let it run.
