Sautéed Mushrooms and Spinach with Spicy Garlic Sauce
- 25 Comments
Ruth Reichl, Editor in Chief of Gourmet magazine, spoke at The Journalism School last week. And not surprisingly, I was seated in the front row, looking doe-eyed at the culinary grandmaster. Reichl discussed her past career experiences, the fate of magazine readership and the future of the culinary media industry. She was refreshingly simple in her approach to food. “The thing about good food is that anybody can recognize it,” Reichl said. The one-time food critic added that Korean cuisine will be the next trend in the culinary world, and so I’ve adapted this recipe from several recipes in the March issue to dip into that Korean flavor. Enjoy!

Sauteed Mushrooms and Spinach with Spicy Garlic Sauce
- 2 teaspoons sesame seeds
- 1 teaspoon minced garlic
- 1/4 cup chopped scallions
- 3 Tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
- 1 Tablespoon sesame oil
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 2 Tablespoons olive oil
- 4 cups sliced mushrooms, such as shitake or portabello
- 4 cups loosely packed baby spinach leaves
Add the sesame seeds to a small sauté pan set over medium-low heat. Cook the seeds, moving them around frequently in the pan, until golden brown and toasted.
Transfer the sesame seeds to a cutting board and use a heavy knife to crush them into smaller pieces.
In a bowl, whisk together the crushed sesame seeds with the garlic, scallions, soy sauce, sesame oil, red pepper flakes and sugar. Set the mixture aside.
Add the olive oil to a saucepan over medium heat.
Add the mushrooms and cook until golden brown, 5 to 7 minutes, then add the spinach.
Pour the sauce over the mushrooms and spinach and cook an additional 5 minutes then serve.
