Spinach Oshitashi Style

This chilled side dish is the perfect make-ahead accompaniment to any Asian meal. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

  • servings: 6

Ingredients

  • 2 bunches of spinach, ends trimmed, washed, with water still clinging to the leaves
  • 1 tablespoon tamari or soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • Pinch of sugar
  • Dash of white-wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Place the spinach in a large pot with a tight-fitting lid over high heat. Watching it carefully, steam it until the spinach has fully wilted, 3 to 4 minutes. Drain in a colander and press out the excess moisture.

  2. Step 2

    In a small bowl, whisk together the tamari, sesame oil, sugar, and vinegar. Toss with the spinach until fully coated. Press the spinach into a shallow serving dish. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds, if desired. Cover and chill.
