it’s been a while, i know. being back in poland it’s not an easy thing to do ^^
this time, ohitashi (おひたし). ohitashi means boiled green-leaf vegetables, served usually as a side dish in Japanese cuisine.
that’s the 3rd recipe from the ‘cooking with Keiko-san’ collection.
easy and delicious. enjoy!
1 package of mizuna (also called Japanese mustard)
a little bit of salt
katsuobushi (dried, fermented and smoked tuna)
HOW TO MAKE?
1. Wash mizuna. You can also use spinach or other leafy greens.
2. Boil water with a little bit of salt in the middle of the pot. While it’s boiling, prepare some cold water in a big bowl.
3. Once the water is boiling, put in mizuna. Keep it in the hot water for about two minutes.
4. Now, take it out to the bowl with cold water you prepared earlier and pour some cold water on it.
5. And now – squeeze it!
6. When it’s squeezed, put it aside for a while to cool it down. And, after some time, cut it.
7. Squeeze it one more time. Now, it’s done! Serve it with katsuobushi and soy sauce (on the side).
Thank you for sharing!
Very tasty and :good looking” blog! Congratulations!
thank you, i’m trying (and having fun at the same time) ^^
Oishi! My grandmother taught me this method with spinach, but never thought to use mizuna for this. Looking back, she did this with all sort of greens! Mizuna is so inexpensive at our local Japanese market. Thank you so much for sharing. I have been working on recreating my grandmother’s and mother’s recipes and this is one of them!
hihi i’m happy i could help ^^ grandmother’s and mother’s recipes are always the best, don’t you think?
