Spinach Gomae


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. 

"Dressing" 
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!
