Today I'd like to share with you an unbelievably simple dish. This dish is very nutritious as it contains all the good ingredients such as spinach, soya bean and sesame. It is extremely easy to prepare and delicious to eat. You can use it as an accompaniment with rice or bread.

  • A bunch of spinach
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoon soya bean powder (read below to learn how to prepare soya bean powder from soya bean)
  • Salt as you desire
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon sesame seed
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
Preparing Soya Bean Powder:
  • Heat sauce pan on medium-high.
  • Put a handful of soya bean and heat it stirring regularly until it gets brown.
  • Let it cool. Grind it in your grinder to make soya bean powder.
  • You can also make large amount of soya bean powder and store it in an air-tight container for future use.
Final Preparation:
  • Wash spinach well and put it in boiling water.
  • Cook for about 3-4 minutes until the spinach is little soft but DO NOT overcook.
  • Drain out the water and let the spinach cool.
  • Put the spinach in a mixing bowl. Add soya bean powder, salt, sesame oil and chilli powder. Mix well.
  • Put it on a serving plate and garnish with toasted sesame seeds.

    My daughter didn't understand that most people "don't like spinach" until she tried it on a plane. Before that, she LOVED it. I believe if more people understood how flavorful and easy it is to prepare well, they would enjoy it too. The key is not to cook it to death. Thank you for the reminder.

    This looks very similar to a dish I used to eat at one of my favorite restaurants, but I have never known how to prepare it myself. Thanks so much for this recipe.

    Sounds like a healthy dish. We have soy bean flour here and I wonder if it will be the same by toasting it or dry frying it.

    It's great to see most of you have liked this recipe. Thanks EVERYONE for taking time to post the comments.

    @Lael: Yes overcooking spinach is a recipe for disaster. :)

    @Andrea: Right... not only the picky kids but also the picky adults.

    @Biren: I've never seen or heard of soy bean flour. That's something new to me. Try one recipe with my method and try another with soy bean flour. If they tastes similar, then they are one and the same thing. If I find it, I'm gonna give it a try myself. Thanks for your comment.
