Horensou no Ohitashi


Spinach is an Autumn Crop both in Harvest Moon and in Rune Factory and Boiled Spinach is a fairly common Recipe in both series.

Here is a traditional Recipe for Boiled Spinach.


1 pound fresh spinach, washed
2 tablespoons soy sauce
4 tablespoons dashi soup stock

4 tablespoons katsuobushi (dried bonito flakes)

Fill large pot with water and bring to a boil. Add salt. Place spinach in the boiling water from the stem side and boil for one minute. Drain the spinach, squeezing to remove excess water.

Cut spinach into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Arrange pieces in a bowl, mix dashi soup stock and soy sauce, then pour mixture on top of the Spinach. Garnish with katsuobushi if desired.
