Meatballs and Spinach - SE Asia Style

My friend Dianthus moved to Bangkok a few months ago, and ever since she got there, she has been writing posts about all the delicious Thai food that she gets to eat. I'm so jealous.

Recently, she has been experimenting with different Asian recipes and came up with a recipe for Meatballs - SE Asia Style. These were some damn good meatballs (I made them using ground chicken). I ate them with some spinach, which of course I had to name "Spinach - SE Asia Style." The spinach recipe is below.

Spinach – SE Asia Style

1 T sesame oil

1 tsp. chili oil

6 oz. spinach

½ red bell pepper, sliced

½ tsp. fresh ginger, minced

2 T soy sauce

½ tsp. sesame seeds

In a sauté pan, heat oil, and then add ginger. Cook the ginger for about 3 or 4 minutes. Add chili oil. Add the bell pepper and sauté for 2 minutes. Add spinach to the pan. Allow the spinach to wilt down. Add soy sauce to the spinach and cook for another couple of minutes. Garnish with sesame seeds and serve hot. Enjoy!
