Yum, love spinach and this was a nice and easy way to eat it. Thanks! Made for the Greens game in the Diabetic forum. :D

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 ounces fresh spinach, washed (prefer baby leaves)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seeds (add more if you prefer)
  • 1 12 tablespoons vegetable oil (something light tasting)
  • 12 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. Put spinach in a salad spinner and dry well. (or use paper towels). Remove stalks if any.
  2. If using large leaves, roll up tightly and cut crossway in wide strips. (if using baby leave alone).
  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. 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. Sprinkle over dry-heated sesame seeds and serve immediately.
  6. I love this with some naan bread.
