We raided the garden and came up with some yummy goodness! I threw it together making my version of Sesame Spinach (mind you that version changes each time with what ingredients I have on hand)
Fresh spinach, about 4 cups (I ran a knife through them so they would be bite size)
Radishes (sliced, I used the leaves as well)
Onion (sliced and I used the green tops as well – waste not, want not)
Sesame seeds (toasted)
Coconut oil (a little less than a tablespoon)
Salt and pepper to taste (I used maybe a 1/4 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp black pepper)
Toast your sesame seeds in a dry pan. Set them aside once toasted. I put them on one of the plates I was going to serve dinner on. No one will know and anyway who wants to wash an extra dish? Not me!
Put your coconut oil in the pan to melt (it is solid at room temperature, unless you are in our house in August)
Saute the onions and radish slices for a couple of minutes.
Add the radish leaves and saute them for a minute or two. (long enough for you to run a knife through your spinach a couple of times to make them bite size)
Add your spinach and cover. Let it cook for a couple of minutes.
Once it has wilted to half the volume add the sesame seeds, salt and pepper (or spices of choice).
Cook about two minutes more.
Serve warm and enjoy!
You can add garlic if you like.
If you don’t want the sesame seeds, you can add a few drops of sesame oil instead. You’ll get the flavor and no seeds to pick from your teeth.
You can omit the salt and add soy sauce if you like. The options are endless… It is your meal, you can add or leave out whatever you want!
