>Spinach with Katsuobushi


We love to eat meat and when we do, I always try to balance it with some veggies. This is our favorite side salad. It`s spinach (ほうれん草) with bonito shavings or katsuobushi (鰹節).


  • Spinach
  • Katsuobushi
  • 1-3 tsp Soy sauce


Cut and wash the leaves then steam or boil the. Take care not to overcook the leaves. They must still have the bright green color in them. Drain and pour a bit of soysauce then top it with the katsuobushi. You can also add sesame seeds if you want.

I am always on the lookout for some “kamote” (Ipomoea batatas) tops or “kangkong” (Ipomoea aquatica), sometimes called “swamp cabbage” at the supermarket for my side salad but this is not Ilocos or the Philippines so, we make do with the spinach. Mangantayon!
