I discovered kale after I moved to New York, and I love its rich texture and flavor. Japanese people often make this with spinach, too. Preparation tip: To chop sesame seeds, pulse about five times in a spice grinder-gently, so the mix doesn't turn to paste.

  1. Steam kale over boiling water for 3 minutes, or just until bright green and wilted. Drain in a colander and rinse under cold water. Gently squeeze kale to release excess water. Lay kale on a clean tea towel or cheesecloth and gently roll up to absorb any remaining liquid.
  2. In a small bowl, mix chopped sesame seeds with sugar, soy sauce, and a pinch of salt.
  3. Unroll kale and cut into 1-inch pieces; place in a small bowl. Pour sesame mixture over kale and toss well to combine. Serve warm or cold.
