“You don’t have to be a spinach fan to happily eat up these greens,” assures Dotty Egge, a field editor from Pelican Rapids, Minnesota. Soy sauce gives her energy-packed dish an Asian twist. “I serve it over rice or as a side. Try garnishing it with toasted sesame seeds.”


  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 3/4 pound fresh spinach, trimmed


  1. In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, sugar, broth, soy sauce and sesame oil until smooth; set aside.
  2. In a small skillet, saute the garlic in canola oil for 1 minute. Stir broth mixture and add to skillet. Cook and stir over medium heat until slightly thickened. Add spinach; cook and stir for 2 minutes or just until spinach is wilted and coated with sauce. Serve with a slotted spoon.
