    • 1 bag of ready-to-eat spinach (approx. ½ lb)
    • Salt to taste

    Sesame Dressing:

    • 1/2 tsp of sake
    • 1/2 tsp of quality mirin
    • 3 tbsp roasted white sesame seeds
    • 1 1/2 tbsp soy sauce
    • 1 tbsp sugar

    Special Equipment:

    • Mortar and Pestle or food processor


    Instructions:

    1. Heat a skillet to low heat. Toast the sesame seeds by placing them into the skillet. When a few of the sesame seeds begin to pop, remove from the heat. (light golden color)
    2. Grind the sesame seeds using a mortar and pestle (ideal method). If you don't have access to a motor and pestle, you can grind them in a food processor. (not so ideal, as you tend to lose the texture.
    3. In a small bowl, combine the sesame seeds, soy sauce, sugar, sake and mirin. Mix well.
    4. Bring a large pot of water to a boil add a pinch of salt.
    5. Add spinach to boiling water and cook for one minute. Drain and soak with cold water until cooled.
    6. Drain the spinach and make sure to remove as much water as possible (just grab it in your hands and squeeze it or use a clean towel). Collect the spinach and cut into pieces, separating the spinach as much as possible
    7. Toss the spinach in the sesame dressing.
    8. Serve and enjoy!

    You will not be disappointed. Spinach Gomae is simply delicious. I eat this dish all the time. I order it at sushi places all the time too. It works well with my avocado roll.

    I gotta get my greens ;)
