Gomaae

Gomaae is a Japanese side dish and may be translated as "sesame dressing". There are several types of gomaae dishes. We are going to present the most popular one: Gomaae with spinach.


Ingredients:

  • Fresh spinach
  • 2 tbsp miso* (soya bean paste)
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp ground sesame
  • 1 tbsp sake* (Japanese rice wine)
* May not be available in Western supermarkets; but you should be able to find it in Japanese grocery stores that exist in most large European and American cities.


Preparation:

1) Wash the spinach well and put it with the roots first into boiling water.
2) Boil the spinach for about one minute. Be careful not to overcook it.
3) Cool the spinach down under cold water. Then, press the water out of the spinach and cut the spinach into about 3 cm long pieces.
4) Prepare the dressing: Give the miso, sake, sugar and sesame into a bowl and mix it well.
5) Mix the spinach with the dressing as shown on the picture and serve it in small bowls.
