Sesame Greens

Sesame Kale

  • Sesame Greens
  • Serves 2 adults

 

Ingredients:

  • -1 bunch raw leafy greens such as kale, spinach or collard greens*, cleaned and dried with stems removed
  • -1 teaspoon sesame seeds
  • -¾ teaspoon sesame oil
  • -2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • -1-2 cloves garlic, smashed and peeled
  • -Salt, pepper and red pepper flakes, to taste

 

Preparation:

Toast the seeds:

Heat a small, dry pan over low heat. Add the seeds and stir continuously, until toasted and fragrant, around 2 minutes. Remove seeds to a small plate to cool.

Cook the greens:

Heat a large sauté pan or skillet over medium heat and add the oil, garlic cloves and red pepper flakes. Heat for around 30 seconds.

Add the greens and a pinch of salt, stir and let cook. Your cooking time will change depending on the type of greens you use. For example, a tender green, like spinach, can take as little as 1-2 minutes. A heartier type of green, like kale, can take 5 or more minutes. Keep an eye on them and stir occasionally.

Once cooked, remove the greens to a plate, drizzle with the sesame oil and sprinkle the sesame seeds on top.

*If you’re using collard greens or kale, remove the ribs and roughly chop them.

Make this into a meal by serving it alongside your favorite rice and Bake Tofu or Broiled Salmon.
