Seasoned Spinach


2 bunches spinach (about 8 ounces)

1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 green onion, chopped

1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds, plus more for garnish

1 teaspoon salt or to taste



Bring about 1/4 inch water to a boil in a large pot.  Add spinach, cover, and steam until the leaves are just wilted, about a minute.  Immediately transfer to a colander and rinse with cold water.  Squeeze the water from the spinach and shape into a ball. Cut the ball in half, then half again then half again.

 Mix the spinach with the sesame oil, garlic, green onion, sesame seeds, and salt in a medium bowl.  Let sit for at least 10 minutes to let the flavors soak in.

Serve at room temperature or chilled sprinkled with sesame seeds.    


I love eating this spinach with rice, sliced avocado, pickled ginger and toasted nori.
