Easy: Sesame Spinach

Sesame spinach is much better than it may look at first. I love it because it only consists of four different ingredients and I usually have those in the house. Additionally, it's can be made in minutes and thus does not justify unhealthy snacks if you're looking out for your health. 






Ingredients:

serves two (or one hungry person)
  • 400g of frozen spinach. Yes, you can also get the fresh stuff. But the frozen version works just fine for this.
  • 50g of sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon of sesame oil (the good stuff made from roasted sesame, not "sesame flavored oil")
  • 2 tablespoons of soy sauce



Instructions:

  • Thaw spinach. 
  • Get a pan and roast the sesame seeds.

  • Press any excess liquid out of the spinach. This isn't necessary if you are using freshly blanched spinach...



  • Put the drained spinach in a bowl and add soy sauce and sesame oil. 


  • Add roasted sesame seeds. Mix well. 


  • Done! Enjoy!

This is a great dish for bentos and lunch boxes! You can make it in advance and even freeze portions if you are really busy, but want to bring a healthy lunch.
