Nutritional values

Sesame and spinach form an ideal vegetarian duo in terms of iron supply. The body can absorb the vital trace element particularly well here thanks to the additional vitamin C injection from fresh lemons.

Variation: You can also use fresh baby spinach for the Asian appetizer, which you simply have to boil briefly in boiling water. However, you will then need at least double the amount, as frozen spinach is already blanched and therefore collapses much less.

It reminds me of home. The spinach looks good! Maybe I would add some garlic.
