5 MIN Spinach Ohitashi (Japanese Spinach Salad Side Dish Recipe) | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

Spinach Ohitashi (Japanese Spinach Salad) is a very typical Japanese side dish, perfect for any meal (breakfast, lunch, or dinner) and Bento lunch box. Tasty yet addictive 😋




Cooked spinach seasoned with soy sauce is NOT Ohitashi. Soaking into Dashi Soy Sauce is Ohitashi 👍

Spinach Ohitashi (Japanese Spinach Salad Side Dish Recipe)


Difficulty: VERY EASY
Time: 5min
Number of servings: 4

Ingredients:
200g (7oz.) Spinach
salt
* 2 tbsp. Dashi broth
* 1&1/2 tbsp. Soy Sauce
* 1 tsp. Mirin (Sweet Sake) *1/3 tsp. sugar is OK
Katsuobushi (bonito flakes)

Directions:
1. Cut off the root of the stem and make a cross cut (if the stem is dirty), then wash. In this way you can wash away soil easily but if your spinach is clean then you can simply wash.
2. Boil water in a large pot. Add a pinch of salt in the water (salt removes oxalic acid - bitter taste, and makes the spinach nice and green).
2. Add spinach in the boiling water from the stem side.
3. Boil spinach for about 15~30 seconds. Drain and wash with running water to cool. Squeeze the spinach to remove excess water (use paper towel if you have).
4. Cut into 1.5 inch (4cm) long pieces.
5. Mix Dashi broth, Soy Sauce, and Mirin, then soak spinach for a while.
6. Serve on a dish, garnish with Katsuobushi (bonito flakes) to finish.

---------------------------------

Goku Super Saiyan Bento Lunch Box


Ingredients:
Hanpen (fish cake) or cheese slice for a base
1 egg
Royal Blue and Violet food coloring
salt, sugar, and/or Dashi powder to season eggs
ham slices
Nori seaweed sheet
tomato ketchup for blood
You can make rice or noodle dish with a lot of vegetables to save time making side dishes.

Karaage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bam1EE5NqhA


3 Tips to make Anime / Manga Characters:
#1 Use clear colors for the eggs. Egg white is easy to break, so you can mix starch and water to prevent it from breaking(1 tsp. starch & 1 tsp. water for 1 egg white).
#2 Make sure you don't put eyes on top of ham (face). They must be at the same level or eyes will look like popping out...
#3 Cut Nori seaweed lines as thin as possible. Thick lines look sloppy...

How to Keep Onigiri (Rice Balls) MOIST in the Fridge Overnight | Japanese Cooking Video Recipe

Rice getting hard / drying out in the fridge overnight, solution?


The answer is easy. It is to mix in oil. You can use any cooking oil but adding some healthy one is a better choice I think 😉No microwaving (reheating) needed when you eat 👍




BTW "Oil Onigiri" is something popular here in Japan, in the way it makes the Onigiri tasty!

If you are making Onigiri a night before, I recommend not touching the it with your bare hands. This is why I use plastic wrap. In this way Onigiri will be bactaria free and lasts longer.

Stir-Fried Dried Squid and Vegetables (NO Knife! Kitchen Shears) - Video Recipe

We received some dried squids when we visited the nearby shrine for our son's Omiyamairi (the first shrine visit) and my darling's Yakubarai (ceremony to drive away evil spirits). I decided to make a dish out of them.

It turned out to a very tasty and delicious stir-fried dish, goes great with white rice. Oyster-sauce flavor, with a hint of chive is obviously addictive. Very filling with lots of bean sprouts ;)

You don't need a knife but use kitchen scissors / kitchen shears!

Of course, you can use regular squids.

FYI: Hatsumiya-Mairi (初宮参り) or Omiyamairi (お宮参り) is one of the traditional celebration events for Japanese babies. Whenever a newborn is over a month old, we bring the baby to a nearby shrine for a greeting (giving the invocation).

Directions:
1. Put the ingredients for the filling in a bowl and mix well by hand (hand is better but using a spoon is okay) until all ingredients are combined and smooth.
2. Place the filling in the middle of the wrapper. Then form an "o" with your left hand and push the filling into the "o" to shape into a little cylinder. Drop onto a counter to flatten out the bottom. Use a spoon to fold in the edges. Top with a green pea if you like. (please watch the video)
3. Heat cooking oil in a frying pan. Place the Shumai and cook on high heat until the bottoms become a bit brown. Add 100ml water, when it becomes to a boil, cover, and steam on med-low heat for 10 min until cooked. Uncover and cook until the water is gone.

Serve with a mixture of soy sauce and a little yellow mustard if preferred.
