Sesame Spinach

3 lbs. fresh spinach, preferably baby spinach leaves
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
1 tsp. toasted sesame oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Rinse spinach well and discard stems. Heat skillet and add spinach with water still clinging to leaves. Cover and cook over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. Uncover and cook 2 more minutes until wilted, stirring often. Drain in colander. Squeeze out excess water.

In small pan, place sesame seeds. Toast over medium heat for 1-2 minutes (keep them moving) until seeds are lightly brown. Set aside.

In skillet, heat sesame oil over medium heat. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add spinach, sesame seeds and salt and pepper, to taste. Cook 1 minute. Serve.
