Ingredients:
Spinach
Garlic
Spring onion
Sesame Oil
Sesame Seeds
Soy Sauce
Spinach

First, wash the spinach well. Don’t chop them up just yet. Blanch them between 30 seconds to 1 minute, depending on how thick (or old) the spinach is. Young spinach typically needs just half a minute.

Next, rinse in cold water.

Then, squeeze out the water between your palms. The spinach should end up in a small ball. Yes, it’s shrunk considerably from when it was raw and dry!
