Ninben Shiro Dashi, 500ml
Ninben's shiro dashi liquid, white dashi stock is the most popular base stock for many Japanese soups, noodle broths and other dishes. This convenient concentrated Shiro Dashi stock is an infusion of kelp, bonito fish, and dried mackerel which brings a delicate Japanese flavour with a huge hit of umami savouriness to many Japanese dishes.
I use this particular brand of Dashi at the GreenZen Poké & Matcha Bar for the Miso Sesame & Truffle Oil Soup and due to the level of concentration of it's core ingredients, it works a charm and lasts for a very long time. For domestic use this should provide you many many months of great soup!
Dashi can be used in numerous ways:
- Add a few dashes to bamboo shoots or other vegetables during cooking, to make an instant stir-fry sauce
- Whisk together 2tsp shiro dashi stock, 3 eggs, 1 tbsp sugar, and 50ml water to make tamagoyaki, a Japanese rolled omelette
- For a refreshing noodle soup, dilute 50ml shiro dashi in 700ml cold water. Add 100g sliced chicken thigh, bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes until cooked. Add cooked noodles for 2 people to warm through together with chopped spinach or greens. Remove from heat and divide between two bowls to serve with an umeboshi plum.
