  1. Bring a large pan of water to the boil and simmer the eggs for 4 mins. Add the noodles, stirring with a fork to break up the nests, then remove the pan from the heat and leave to stand for 4 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, make the dressing by mixing the soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and honey in a bowl; set aside.
  3. Transfer the eggs to a bowl of cold water. Drain the noodles, toss with 1 tsp sesame oil, then divide between 2 bowls.
  4. Set a wok or large frying pan over a high heat. Add 3 tbsp water and the broccoli and stir-fry for 3 mins. Add 1 tsp sesame oil and the garlic and stir-fry for another 1-2 mins until the garlic is just turning golden. Place on top of the noodles and spoon over the dressing. Peel and halve the eggs and add to the bowls. Scatter with the sesame seeds, if using.
