Sauteed Spinach with Shitake Mushrooms and Sesame.

Tonight I stopped at the market and bought some shitake mushrooms. I was in an Asian inspired mood and craving spinach. My recipe involves the following ingredients:

  • Fresh Spinach
  • Shitake Mushrooms
  • Sesame Seeds
  • Sesame Oil
  • Soy Sauce
  • Chili Sauce
  • Minced Garlic
  • Cavenders Seasoning
  • Salt

First step was to wash and slice the shitake mushrooms and wash and drain the spinach.

Next step was to toast the sesame seeds for a few minutes. As the seeds heated in the pan, I added the salt and Cavenders seasoning. Then I added a 1/2 teaspoon of sesame oil and 1/2 teaspoon of soy sauce.

I added the sliced and washed shitake mushrooms to the mixture quickly coating the mushrooms with the seeds. I then added just a bit of minced garlic, a dash of chili sauce, and just another 1/2 teaspoon of soy sauce.

After just a few minutes, I turned down the heat and added the spinach just long enough to start wilting.

Stirred everything together nicely to evenly coat the sesame seeds, and it was ready. This is a meal that’s ready in under 15 minutes and can be served as a main meal or side dish.

Delicious, healthy, and fast.
