Put the spinach in a medium saucepan with just the water clinging to the leaves after washing. Add the crushed chillies and cook for 3–5 minutes until just wilted. Drain thoroughly and transfer to a serving bowl.
Sprinkle the spinach with the sesame oil, salt and lemon juice and toss to mix. Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds, then serve at once.
*This recipe would also work well for broccoli. Cut the spears into florets and slice the stems. Either cook in a little water or steam the broccoli with the chilli flakes for 3–4 minutes or until just tender. Complete as above. *Dried crushed chillies are not the same as chilli powder and are readily available in jars. *This would make a lovely dish to serve as part of a Chinese meal
