Spinach rolls, the healthy low carb diet 清爽健康的開胃菜,胡麻/ 蒜蓉菠菜卷

This is one of J’s favorite dishes. It’s so simple and easy to prepare, but with incredible taste. Quoted from him: I could just inhale a whole pack of spinach like this!! 🙂

Just to bare in mind the spinach would shrink rapidly after you boil them and especially after you squeeze out the water. I used one whole bag of spinach (about 10-12 heads) and turned out to be the small plate I shown in the picture (about 3 rolls.) I normally serve this cold as an appetizer or side dish. Therefore, you can prepare it ahead of time while you cook other dishes without worrying the dish turns cold.

Best of all, it contains minimum amount of oil and is really healthy for your diet. It tastes really refreshing but flavorful. Works really well with all kinds of main dishes.

Spanich Roll
In order to make the spinach rolls, you would need a bamboo sushi mat. Boil the cleaned spinach for about 20 seconds or until soft. Drained the spinach and then place some on the sushi mat then squeeze out water to make the roll firm.

Use a really sharp knife to slice the roll into about 1″ length pieces, then place the pieces on a plate either vertically or horizontally. Sprinkle some white sesame and drizzle the dressing on top.

Garlic and Soy dressing: 4-5 cloves of freshly pressed garlic, 1 tsp Hoisin sauce, a few drops of sesame oil, 1/2 tsp of Sriracha sauce, 1/4 tsp of soy sauce

Spanich Roll-001
I tried both garlic and soy dressing and the Japanese deep-roasted sesame dressing with the spinach rolls. Both of them taste really good!!

Japanese Deep-Roasted Sesame Dressing:

This is the pre-mixed dressing I found in Asian supermarket which taste really good. It has a slight sweet and nutty flavor which is good with vegetables or baked panko chicken/ pork chops.  Here is its ingredients~

Bon Appétit…
