Sesame-Soy Spinach

The Korean name for this dish is sigeumchi namul. It’s a classic banchan (side dish); sigeumchi means spinach and namul is a category of cooked and seasoned vegetable dishes. The spinach is blanched, drained and rinsed under cold water to stop the cooking before it is tossed with a flavorful dressing made with toasted and ground sesame seeds. Like most other namul, the spinach is best served at room temperature or slightly chilled.

Tip

Don’t use baby spinach, which is too delicate. Mature spinach sold in bunches is the type to us. Be sure to wash and drain the spinach to remove any sand or grit, but there’s no need to dry it since it will be blanched.

Might I recommend sprinkling a bit of gochugaru on top? So good.
