El & Mrs Eio were unwell for the past 2 weeks. One of the things they enjoyed doing together was watching Maangchi’s video.
Mrs Eio’s thankful that El has already recovered & Mrs Eio can’t wait to try out Maangchi’s recipe to make Spinach side dish (Sigeumchi-namul ). You can refer to Maangchi’s blog below for her video & original recipe.
Mrs Eio altered the recipe to her liking. She added fish sauce to this dish to enhance its flavour. Here’s Mrs Eio’s ingredients.
- 8 ounces spinach (Mrs Eio washed the spinach clean before blanching & rinsing.)
- 2 garlic clove, minced
- 3/4 tsp of soy sauce
- 3/4 tsp of fish sauce
- 1½ tsp of sesame oil
- 2-3 tsp of sesame seeds
Mrs Eio omitted the Korean dried shredded red pepper & green onion.
Firstly, Mrs Eio roasted the roasted white sesame seed.
She only used 2 tsp of sesame seeds so she kept the rest in an airtight container & store in fridge after it cools down.
Wash the spinach to remove dirt & soil.
Blanch the spinach for 1min.
Rinse & cool the spinach with cool water. Squeeze out the excess water.
Mrs Eio preferred to use a scissors to cut the spinach. She sterilized the scissors before cutting.
Add minced garlic, sesame seeds, fish sauce, sesame oil & soya sauce.
Instead of mixing the spinach with hands, Mrs Eio prefers to use chopsticks. 🙂 it’s really up to you.
Yummy! Here’s the spinach side dish. Mr Eio loves it!
