Japanese Sesame Spinach

1 lb fresh spinach
2 T sesame seeds
2 t sugar
1 T soy sauce
Toast sesame seeds in small dry skillet until fragrant & golden.  Grind in a mortar and pestle along with sugar.  Add soy sauce and stir to make a paste.  Set aside. Wash spinach well, and place in a large pot with just the water that clings to the leaves.  Cover and steam over high heat until just cooked through, just 2-3 minutes.  Drain and toss with sesame paste until evenly coated and serve hot.
