Blessed Monday from Singapore. Went to supermarket to stock up some essentials for the week. Saw and bought Red Spinach, some Japanese Shirasu (Mini WhiteBaits) & some Dried Prawns. Made a nutritious Red Spinach Shirasu Soup with some Red Glutinous Rice Wine Lee for my Samurai as a light Lunch before he goes out to meet his friend to catch up.

Red Spinach divided

First, I soak 2 TBS Dried Prawns in half cup hot water while I clean the Red Spinach, divide the stalks from leaves and pluck the stalk one by one to remove the thin layer of membrane.

I also have some Red Glutinous Rice Wine Lee, 2 TBS Japanese Shirasu (Mini WhiteBaits), 1 tsp Sunflower Oil and some Himalayan Pink Salt to taste.
