Packed with Nutrients - Our Homemade Style Spinach with Tofu Sauce

I used a trick to keep the nutrients intact and added even more nutrition with a touch of miso.

Ingredients: 2 to 3 servings

Spinach
1 bunch
Carrot
1/4
Silken tofu
150 g
* Sugar
1 tablespoon
* Usukuchi soy sauce
1 teaspoon
* Miso
1 teaspoon
* Ground sesame seeds
3 tablespoons

Steps

1. Press the tofu to drain out excess water.
2. Cut the rinsed spinach into 5 cm lengths, put in a pot, cover, and heat for about 3 to 4 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
3. Cut the carrots into 1.5 cm length sticks, wrap in a damp paper towel and saran wrap, and cook in a microwave for 1 minute at 600 W.
4. Combine the ingredients marked with a * in a bowl. Add the lightly drained spinach from Step 2, the pressed tofu, and the carrots from Step 3 and toss. Enjoy!
5. Note - In Step 2, if you add the carrots to steam with the spinach, drain, and add tofu and the ingredients marked with a *, you get this →
6. That way, you'll have fewer dishes to clean and it will save you some time.

Story Behind this Recipe

Since tofu sauce has a lot of nutrition, I wanted to optimize it even more while preparing the vegetables.
