Spinach Gomaae Recipe

Spinach gomaae is a traditional Japanese side dish served at room temperature, making it perfect for a bento box. To reduce the original points per serving, I have substituted a stevia blend for sugar, and PB2 powder for ground sesame seeds. The result is a delicious 2-point side dish.


Serves: 1

Points Per Serving: 2



  • 1 Tbsp. mirin (sweet rice cooking wine)
  • 1 cup spinach, cooked
  • 1/4 tsp. Truvia stevia blend (adjust your own brand of sweetener based on 1 Tbsp. regular sugar)
  • 2 Tbsp. PB2 powdered peanut butter
  • 2 tsp. soy sauce



  1. Combine and thoroughly mix all ingredients except spinach.
  2. Pour the mixture onto spinach and distribute evenly.
  3. Store in the refrigerator for 3 days (it might last longer, but I’ve always finished it before then). Best served cold or at room temperature.
