Spinach Ohitashi Recipe

      2 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 bunch Fresh Spinach
  • 100 ml Dashi Stock
  • 1 tablespoon Soy Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Mirin

Directions

  1. Boil about 1 litre of water and 1 tsp salt.
  2. Parboil the spinach. Dip in the stem part first and hold the leaf part with your hand or chopsticks/tong out of the boiling water for 30 seconds then place the leaf part into the boiling water and cook for a further 30 seconds.
  3. Take out the spinach. Dip it into a bowl of icy cold water to avoid the spinach cooking further.
  4. Squeeze out excess water and cut spinach 4-5 cm lengthwise.
  5. Squeeze out excess water again and place spinach into a flat, shallow container.
  6. Mix Dashi stock, soy sauce and mirin. Pour over the spinach to soak the spinach.
  7. Cover with cling wrap and refrigerate for at least one hour.
  8. Serve in a small bowl or plate and top with bonito flakes or roasted sesame seeds.
