Asian-Style Spinach

Looking for a way to sauce up that steamed spinach?  Here you go...Asian-style.

Asian-Style Spinach
Makes 4 servings.

2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 pound leaf spinach, washed and stems removed, coarsely chopped (or use baby spinach)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon sugar
Pinch of freshly ground black pepper
Toasted sesame seeds

Heat the oil in a large skillet or wok over medium heat until it shimmers. Add the garlic and cook, stirring constantly, for 1 minute.  Immediately add the spinach.  Cook until the spinach is wilted, about 3 minutes, and reduce the heat to low.

In a small bowl, stir together the soy sauce, sugar and pepper.  Stir into the spinach and remove from the heat.  Top with sesame seeds.
