Sauteed Spinach with Toasted Sesame Oil
EatingWell Test Kitchen
“A delicious and quick spinach saute is a nice addition to any meal.”
2 teaspoons toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons minced ginger
1 10-ounce bag fresh spinach, (see Ingredient note), tough stems removed
2 teaspoons rice vinegar
1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sesame seeds, garlic and ginger; cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add spinach and cook, stirring, until just wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat; stir in vinegar and soy sauce. Serve immediately.
Ingredient Note: The sturdier texture of mature spinach stands up better to sauteing than baby spinach and it's a more economical choice. We prefer to serve baby spinach raw.
People with celiac disease or gluten-sensitivity should use soy sauces that are labeled "gluten-free," as soy sauce may contain wheat or other gluten-containing sweeteners and flavors.
