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. 


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


  • 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.
