Vegetal: Spinach

Otaku Spinach :: オタク(宅男) ほうれん草 :: las espinacas

Prep Time: 5 minute


  1. Neutral Oil for the pan
  2. 2-3 Cloves of chopped garlic
  3. 1/4 Onion, chopped (optional)
  4. 1 Bag of pre-washed spinach
  5. 2 tsp Oyster sauce (or Teriyaki sauce).

I recently purchased a 14-inch seasoned cast iron wok – it is FANTASTIC! It holds and cooks leafy green vegetables with ease. I have no more excuses – nor hesitation. The wok is big enough to prepare leafy green vegetables without awkwardness or mess. It also looks fantastic stored on the stove with a wooden lid – an update to the kettle pot, love it!

How To:

  1. Chop (or blend) garlic and onion.
  2. Place about 1/2-to-1 Tablespoon of oil in your pan, heat on medium-high.
  3. Cook onion until it’s translucent. Add garlic, cook until fragrant.
  4. Add spinach, stir-into garlic and onion until cooked down.
  5. Drizzle oyster (or teriyaki) sauce.

Kidwise: My kids will not eat spinach when it is prepared this way, and then placed onto their plate. However – when I add a bit to a bowl of Soup Ramen or Udon Noodle Soup? Eaten, bye-bye, gone, none-left… ❤ Otauku! Xiè Xie!
