“This is a quick, easy side dish that I've made often on weeknights. I've changed it a bit...the sesame seeds were listed as optional but I wouldn't leave them out if I had a gun pointed at my head (but you can do what you want of course). I found this in a funeral home lounge, in a pamphlet about healthy living (always looking for those recipes, ya know??) *toast the sesame seeds in a heavy skillet over low heat for about 5 minutes, or till they turn golden, shaking the skillet occasionally.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Wash and drain the spinach well.
  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, and add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring constantly, for 2 minutes.
  3. Stir in the garlic, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar and pepper flakes. Add the spinach and cook, turning the ingredients frequently with a wooden spoon, until the spinach is barely wilted, about 3 minutes. Discard any liquid. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Serve hot.
