Garlicky Tahini Wilted Spinach


Fresh Spinach Tossed with Warm Tahini, Garlic, and Lemon
Garnished with Black & White Sesame Seeds


Packed with flavor as well as vitamins, minerals, and fiber. This is one delightful healthy satisfying side dish.


Tahini (Sesame Seed Paste)



Heat olive oil in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add a good amount of chopped garlic, then add tahini. Stir to combine and heat through. Add a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.



Add fresh spinach leaves, toss until just starting to wilt. Finish with black & white sesame seeds and sea salt.



Another reason to love sesame: Sesame seeds are high in phytosterols, a plant component with a chemical structure similar to cholesterol. When present in the diet in sufficient amounts phytosterols are believed reduce cholesterol absorption.

Lori, how I wish this had come a day before I bought just one bunch of spinach! In any case, I've to buy the tahini as well, so I guess it can wait - looks and sounds so good.
