I love to get this in Japanese restaurants, but there are not many who carry it near me, so I learned how to make it.

Traditionally it calls for you to crush your own sesame seeds, but why do that when there is tahini available?

Also, most recipes call for you to boil the spinach and squeeze it dry. You can do that if you like, then add the sauce.
