RECIPE: Spinach Shiraae (Spinach Tofu with Dashi)


Shiraae combines classic Japanese ingredients into a delicious side dish that is easy to make and full of flavor. Creamy tofu and nutty sesame seeds come together in an umami-rich, refreshing yet satisfying dressing for your favorite boiled vegetables including spinach, green beans or asparagus. In this recipe we use our Natural Multi-Umami Dashi for enhanced flavor.

  • 200-300g spinach 
  • 3 Tbsp ground white or golden sesame seeds

  1. Wrap the tofu in paper towel and let sit to absorb excess liquid.
