Goma-ae (Japanese Spinach Salad with Sesame Dressing)
1 pound frozen or fresh baby spinach
1-2 tablespoons mirin (rice wine) or sake, or vegan white wine
1-2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil, or ground toasted sesame seeds
1-2 tablespoons tamari, soy sauce, or teriyaki sauce
1 teaspoon sugar (omit if using teriyaki sauce)
1. Thaw the frozen spinach and drain well. Or, if you're using fresh spinach, just wilt, drain, and refrigerate until cool.
2. For sauce, mix mirin, sesame oil, tamari, and sugar together, and add to the spinach. Serve cool, or at room temperature.
Try this with broccoli, too!
