Pique Your Appetite with this Spinach Tossed with Tuna and Sesame

This recipe is so easy; all you have to do is parboil and toss everything together. The sweet and savory flavor goes perfectly with rice! Serve it as a bento item. Even my husband who doesn't eat vegetables ate this.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Spinach
1 bunch
Canned tuna
1 small can (80 g)
● Sesame seeds
a generous amount
● Soy sauce
2 tablespoons
● Sugar
1 and 1/2 tablespoons
● Grated ginger (tubed)
1/2 thumbs' worth (3 to 4 cm)

Steps

1. Boil water in a pot. Cut the spinach leaves in half. Parboil the stalks, then the leaves for 1 to 2 minutes.
2. Squeeze excess water from the spinach, then chop into 2-3 cm lengths. Gently drain the liquid from the canned tuna, then combine the spinach and tuna in a bowl.
3. Toss with the ● ingredients. See the Hints.
4. This is the tuna can I used.

Story Behind this Recipe

This dish is apparently served at school lunches, so I modified this for serving at home.
