    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 8 ounces fresh spinach, washed (prefer baby leaves)
    • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds (add more if you prefer)
    • 1 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil (something light tasting)
    • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt (or kosher salt, more to taste if needed, I add more)
    • 3 garlic cloves, sliced (less if you don't care for the taste)


    1. 1
      Put spinach in a salad spinner and dry well. (or use paper towels). Remove stalks if any.
    2. 2
      If using large leaves, roll up tightly and cut crossway in wide strips. (if using baby leave alone).
    3. 3
      Heat wok to medium heat. Add sesame seeds, and dry fry stirring constantly for 1-2 minutes until golden brown. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.
    4. 4
      Add oil to wok and swirl around. When hot, add the salt, spinach and garlic and stir-fry for 2 minutes until the spinach just wilts a bit and the leaves are coated with oil.
    5. 5
      Sprinkle over dry-heated sesame seeds and serve immediately.
    6. 6
      I love this with some naan bread.

      For history buffs, this was Michael Angelo's favorite dish, but , with a few changes.
      Olive oil, crushed garlic cloves (the more the better), fresh leafy spinach (rinsed), and a sprinkle of coarsely ground salt. All these simple ingredients cooked in that order make an absolutely fantastic AND healthy side dish. I sometimes make it a main dish with a really good, crusty loaf of bread and a glass of wine....mmmmmmm.
