I am always looking for new ways to cook greens. This is from Moosewood and it looks yummy and easy to make! 4 servings. 15 minutes

  1. Clean the spinach and remove any tough stems. Shake off excess water and place in a pot. Set aside.
  2. In a dry skillet, roast the sesame seeds for a couple of minutes until fragrant and golden. DO NOT burn them!
  3. Combine sugar and soy sauce. Stir to dissolve the sugar. Add the sesame seeds.
  4. Place spinach on high heat and steam for 2-3 minutes until wilted. Drain if necessary. Toss with soy-sesame mixture and serve.
