Dinner in a rush

Dinner in a rush

Working Saturday on campus, coming back home and deciding to head to the country to enjoy the beautiful weather, I had to prepare dinner in a bit of a rush once we arrived, with an empty fridge and very few ingredients. Hopefully A. is always ok with simple vegab food, and I prepared steamed leek with miso, steamed spinaches with yuzu and miso, served with a bowl of white and green rice, and a few umeboshi. I actually was impressed by the spinach, and want to share my improvised recipe. I steam the spinach until bright green and then cool them and drained them to stop the process and keep their beautiful color. Then I cut them into 3-4cm, add 2tsp of miso (mild granulous miso in my case, white could work fine too), and mix the miso and the spinach with the fingers. I cut a slice of peel of fresh yuzu and thinly cut it (you can grat it if you prefer) and mix it too, keep a few for the decoration. Shape the spinach as a little mound, top with some yuzu peel. Eat with rice, white fish...
