The ingredient list: English spinach, sesame seeds, soy sauce, mirin, sugar, and water.
Unlike the Brussels Sprouts from a few weeks ago, I knew this spinach recipe would be a hit with the family as we all really like spinach cooked with this texture. Most unusual with DH recipes, I could not get this one to work out as stated in the book. Immersing the spinach in water as suggested in the recipe, even for less than 5 seconds, rinsing it, squeezing out the moisture, etc., resulted in spinach that looked completely cooked, so I arranged some on a plate, microwaved it for 20 seconds and it looked like the picture in the book. Either way, it tasted great as I ate the rejects, of course.
The dressing was simple to make and delicious, I would make it again as it goes great with the spinach, adding a nice boost of Asian type flavor which I enjoy, the sesame seeds give it a nutty flavor as well, I'm pairing it next with baked/steamed fish. It's a quick flavorful dressing to serve with any type of salad.
