Spinach Oshitashi

Spinach Oshitashi

Serves 5 | Prep Time 35 minutes | Cook Time 5 minutes


10 cups spinach leaves, washed

2 cups water, for cooking spinach

3 Tbsp Eden Mirin

2 Tbsp Eden Shoyu Soy Sauce

1 cup water, for marinade

1 Tbsp Eden Bonito Flakes, crumbled, optional

2 tsp Eden Shake
or pan toasted white sesame seeds


Place 1 cup water, mirin, and shoyu in a bowl and mix. Bring 2 cups water to a boil, add the spinach and cook 1 to 2 minutes. Place in a colander, rinse under cold water to set the color and drain. Squeeze excess liquid from spinach with your hands. Place the spinach in a shallow casserole dish and pour the mirin and shoyu marinade over. Let marinate for 30 minutes, mixing occasionally to evenly marinate. Place marinated spinach on top of a sushi mat. Wrap the mat completely around the spinach, and squeeze to remove excess liquid. Remove the mat and slice the spinach in 1 inch long sections. Place the spinach on a serving platter with the cut surface facing up like sushi. Garnish with crumbled bonito flakes, if desired, and Eden Shake.
