Hi! I'm Miranda with recipe.com and today I'm gonna show you how to make Sauteed Spinach with Toasted Sesame Oil. So, we have our ingredients all laid out here. Of course, the star of the show is our spinach-- this delightful, lovely, little leafy green. Now, we're actually using mature spinach as supposed to baby spinach. The mature spinach holds up well to cooking, sauteing any sort of cooking and we really preferred to use baby spinach-- that delicate, delicate little leaf in like a salad or in some sort of raw form. Spinach is absolutely packed with iron, so this is gonna be an awesome, super healthy side dish. So, we have 1 (10-ounce) bag of washed and dried spinach here, all ready to go. We have 2 cloves of fresh garlic, which have been minced. We have 2 teaspoons of fresh minced ginger, 1 teaspoon of reduced-sodium soy sauce. Then, we have 2 teaspoons of toasted sesame oil. Then, we have 2 teaspoons also of rice vinegar, and 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds. So, we are going to get started over here. You can either use a Dutch oven or like a medium-sized skillet like I have over here. We're gonna do it on medium-heat and make sure it's not too, too hot because we're gonna start by cooking our garlic. We're gonna grab our sesame oil, our delicious, toasted sesame oil. Now, we are going to add in our garlic. Oh, my gosh that smells so good and our ginger. Now, we're just gonna let this cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds and now let's add in our sesame seeds with the garlic and the ginger, so that smelling delicious, perfectly fragrant. So, I know, I'm ready to add in my spinach. Now, because of the size of my pan and the amount of spinach I have, what we're gonna start to do is just do in batches. We're gonna toss and let this wilt, making more room for the rest of the spinach. And now, you see is it's wilting, I have more room, okay. So, I'm just gonna keep adding these in and I'm just tossing, wilting, and [unk] as I go, until I can fit all of the spinach into the pan. Okay, so it's been 2 minutes. Look how gorgeously this is wilted, looks so super yummy delicious. Let's turn it off the heat and then the very last step is to just sprinkle our soy sauce on and our rice vinegar. Give it one more nice little toss and we are ready to serve. And there you go, the vitamin-packed, super delicious, a nice little twist on an old favorite and that's how you make Sauteed Spinach with Toasted Sesame Oil.
