Roughly chop the soaked mushrooms and bok choy and add them to the broth. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer for 7 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, bring a small pot of water to a boil, add eggs an reduce the heat to low. Cook for 7 minutes and run the under cold water immediately after. Prepare rice noodles according to the instruction on the package. Drain well and transfer to four bowls.
  • Slice carrots and leek and stir-fry them in the same saucepan with a bit more of vegetable oil for 3-4 minutes, one after another. Chop the Chinese red cabbage. Cut the lime into 4 wedges. Peel the eggs and cut the in halves. The egg yolks should be liquid. Chop the green onions.
