Recipe Ingredients for Japanese spinach with sesame sauce

2 bunches of spinach
1/2 cup sesame seeds
2 tablespoon raw agave syrup
1/4 cup shoyu

Recipe Directions for Japanese spinach with sesame sauce

  1. n a powerful blender, food processor, clean coffee grinder or a mortar, grind/pound the sesame seeds until they're broken down. You want them to begin to look oily, but not to be so pulverised that they're turning into tahini. Place then in a large bowl and stir the agave and shoyu into them.

  2. Wash the spinach, & tear the leaves away from the thicker stems. Tear any really large leaves into smaller pieces. Then gently massage the sesame sauce into them - you're not trying to break down the cells in the leaves like you would to tenderise a kale salad; You're just making sure that they're thoroughly covered.

  3. Leave to marinated, anything from 1/2 an hour onwards. If you have a dehydrator, you can leave it in there to marinate & serve the salad warm. Goes great as a side dish with sushi, or even as one of the fillings. Keeps OK in the fridge for one day, but wasn't too good after two days.
