Here is a super tasty and healthy side dish, which is very easy to whip up. I would eat this with a bowl of steamed rice and maybe just some eggs! Spinach is a great source of iron and vitamins and minerals to help keep you full of energy.

Ingredients

  • 250 g fresh spinach (I use baby spinach)
  • 3 tablespoons white sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 big tps caster / fine sugar

Instructions

  1. Cut off the larger stems of the spinach and wash thoroughly.
  2. Making sure you get all the grit out! Nothing worse than a bit of grit in your teeth when eating, my pet hate!
  3. Fill a medium-size pan with water. Bring to a boil, add a pinch of salt and add the spinach
  4. Boil spinach for 30 seconds or until just wilted
  5. Drain off water and add Spinach to a bowl of cold water or run under cold water to stop it cooking further and this will also keep the green colour
  6. Squeeze out any excess water and put spinach into a mixing bowl.

 

  1. Now to make the dressing
  2. Place the sesame seeds into a frying pan
  3. Turn heat to medium and dry fry them until they are golden brown and smelling amazing
  4. Add sesame seeds to a pestle and mortar or some kind of grinder
  5. Add the soy sauce and sugar and blitz or pound until you get a rough paste.
  6. Add mixture to spinach and stir together
