A Ninja Recipe!

Well, here is a quick recipe that I learned when I started eating more Japanese inspired meals. Traditionaly farmers and common Japanese workers ate a variety of vegetables with rice as a main portion of their diet. So here is one that packs a whole lot of nutrition in a small package!

Hourensou no Gomaae

Spinach is loaded with calcium and iron, and is a great source of fiber. We like this recipe because spinach provides so many nutrients in a such a small package.

Yield: 2 servings

Time: 5 minutes


  • 1 bunch of spinach (hourensou)


  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame seeds

  1. Boil spinach for 3 minutes (until slightly wilted)
  2. Submerge in cold water then wring out the leaves inside a paper      towel
  3. Chop spinach into 2″ pieces
  4. Mix sugar, soy sauce, and ground sesame in a bowl, then combine      with spinach and mix
  5. Spinkle with whole sesame seeds
  6. Serve!
