My wonderful friend Brandi introduced us to this delicious way to eat spinach! It's a Japanese style spinach salad called "Gomae"
This the how I made it, as per Brandi's instructions:
Take a big pot and put a bit of water in the bottom to cook your spinach. Bring the water to a boil then add how ever much spinach you want to eat ( we used 1/2 huge bag of spinach) cook for like 30 seconds to 1 minute... Just let the leaves wilt. Drain the spinach in a colander and rinse with cold water. Squeeze the extra water out of the leaves and divide up into bowls for serving.
In a mixer ( we used our nutribullet, Brandi uses magic bullet) put in:
2 Tbsp toasted sesame seeds (toast the seeds before putting in blender)
1 1/2 Tbsp tamari (organic aisle at superstore)
2 Tbsp agave syrup
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp or so of water
Blend/process all together
Pour dressing over each serving of spinach.
The measurements I posted made 2 bowls of salad for Randy & I.
So easy and delish.... You must give it a try!
