Sesame Spinach Salad

Sesame Spinach Salad
Total time 50 min


  • Fresh spinach
  • Mushrooms
  • Chick peas
  • Onion
  • Olive oil
  • Sesame oil
  • Black pepper
  • Salt


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions (sliced into half moons). Cook for about 20 minutes, stirring infrequently until the onions are dry. Then add the oils and stir well. Continue cooking, stirring intermittently, until the onions are slightly crispy and golden brown color. Remove the onions from the pan.
  2. Turn the heat to high and toss in the mushrooms. Add a couple cranks of black pepper and a couple spoonfuls of water. (If you cooked the beans yourself, use the water that you cooked them in.) Cook for a minute or two, until the mushrooms soften, then remove from heat.
  3. Mix the spinach, mushrooms, and beans in a bowl. Add a drizzle of sesame seed oil and a couple more cranks of pepper. Serve topped with a generous portion of crispy caramelized onions.
