Korean Spinach Salad (Sigeumchi Namul)

Korean Spinach Salad Recipe (Sigeumchi Namul)

Get this recipe on the next page >>

This Korean-style spinach salad (Sigeumchi Namul), alongside the earlier featured soya bean sprouts salad, is one of the components for my favourite bibimbap. It is also a popular side dish to complement any Korean meal.

As a spinach lover, I absolutely love that I can taste the freshness of the spinach due to the light seasonings. And it is quite effortless to make this salad, especially if you use baby spinach (there is no preparation work for baby spinach except to wash it before use). Feel free to use regular spinach if you can’t find baby spinach. I’m loving this salad so much, that I will be adding it to my bento lunch boxes in future.

    I love this Korean banchan too. To make a full Korean meal is really not easy since we have to prepare lots of banchan to go with it. Even though it is easy to prepare but when I have to make a few banchan in a day, that’s a lot of work.

      you are right. I always marvel at the 1 main dish with 10 banchan meal I see at K drama. Even at the restaurants here, we usually get only 2 or 3 banchan with every main.

    I have made broccoli the same way before (cos I happened to enjoy a broccoli banchan served in one of the Korean restaurants here) , like what you have done to your soy bean sprouts & spinach banchan :)

    The advantage of using broccoli is that you don’t have to squeeze out too much excess liquids :P compared to spinach.

    Hi, would appreciate more varieties of quick vegetarian meals if u have to share. Chinese style of vegetarian getting to be bit dull now. If u have vegetarian Korean or Japanese meals that be most wonderful.

    Thanks in advance.
