    Zeldaz's Note:

    A standard dish in Japanese home cooking as well as restaurants. The dressing is equally good with tender-crisp green beans or tender cooked Brussels sprouts. From Elizabeth Andoh's classic, "At Home With Japanese Cooking".

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 3/4 lb fresh spinach
    • 3 tablespoons white sesame seeds
    • 1 tablespoon superfine sugar
    • 2 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce


    1. 1
      Remove the stems before washing the spinach leaves. Bring a large pot of saslted water to a rolling boil and cook the spinach until it barely wilts. Drain and refresh the spinach under cold running water. Squeeze out excess moisture before chopping the spinach coarsely.
    2. 2
      Dry roast the sesame seeds in a skillet over medium-high heat and transfer them to a suribachi (Japanese grinding mortar) while still warm. Crush the sesame seeds well before adding the sugar. Continue to grind the sesame and sugar untilthe misture is quite pasty, then add the soy sauce and blend well. You can also do this in a blender or food processor, but will have to double or tripe the quantities to get the volume necessary to engage the blades of your machine; store excess in a tightly sealed jar in the refrigerator.
    3. 3
      Toss the chopped spinach in the dressing and serve chilled or at room temperature.
