Default Spinach with Sweet Sesame Soy

Got this recipe from "Japanese Women Don't Get Old or Fat", and I think it's fantastic. Really quick (less than 5 minutes total!), and fairly healthy in terms of a good way to eat your spinach while making it yummy.

1. Set a pot of water to boil.
2. Mix 1 tsp reduced-sodium soy sauce, 1/8 tsp sugar, and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. You can toast them first, though I don't find it makes a big difference and just adds more work.
3. Once the water has boiled, put 2 cups of raw spinach in, and boil for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
4. Drain the spinach, and mix it with the sauce. Done!

I can't post the link to NutritionData for the stats because I'm too new to 3FC, but the quick facts are:
25 cals, 1 g fat, 0 sat/trans fat, 223mg sodium, 4 g carbs, 1 g fiber, 1 g sugar, 2 g protein.
113% Vitamin A, 28% Vitamin C, 7% Calcium, 10% Iron.

A bit high in sodium, but no more than chips or something, and as long as you keep the rest of the day low, you'll be fine

Great idea to get the greens in for the day, I have a garden fill of silverbeet, I will try with that, sounds tasty and different.
Thanks for sharing.
