Sesame Spinach

2 C raw spinach, washed
1 t sesame oil
2 t ground sesame seeds

Steam spinach until bright in color (about 20 seconds)*. Remove from heat and place in a bowl. If it's a bit wet, pour off the liquid.

Put the oil and seeds in a little dish and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds or so. You just want it to be warm and fragrant; it should not boil. Pour the oil and seeds on the spinach and mix. If you want to, cut the spinach with a kitchen scissors.

Add freshly ground salt to taste.

*You can easily do this in the microwave if you prefer. Put your clean spinach in a covered microwave-safe container and place in the microwave. Heat it up. In about 20 seconds or so it will be steamed. Be careful not to overcook it. It's done when the leaves are a little soft, and it's a bright green color.
