  • 900g spinach
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • ½ tbsp miso glaze or white miso paste
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp golden caster sugar
  • 2 tsp Yuzu juice or lime juice
  • 1 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


  1. Boil the kettle and put the spinach in a large colander set over the sink. Pour over enough boiled water to just wilt the leaves (you may need to do this in batches), then leave to cool. When cool, squeeze the spinach to get rid of the excess water.

  2. Make your dressing by combining all the remaining ingredients (except the sesame seeds) together with 2 tbsp water. (Add a little more water if you want a runnier consistency.) Pour a little dressing over the spinach and toss to coat, then drizzle over the remainder. Sprinkle over the sesame seeds and serve.
