Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. In a heavy stewing pan, combine sesame seeds and water. Stir in spinach. Add more water if necessary; the amount of water used depends on how wet the spinach is. This mixture should cook in smallest amount of water possible. Bring to a boil. Simmer until seeds are cooked, 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. Add butter just before serving, with a starch.
  3. Serves 4.
