Shiro-ae

Cooked salad dressed with tofu. 白和え。

One of the basic categories of the Japanese cuisine (aemono). Cooked green vegetables are flavored with dashi, soy sauce and mirin, and then dressed with tofu. Besides green vegetables (among which spinach is popular) also konnyaku and hijiki can be used, as well as small mushrooms and carrot.
