Korean Banchan: Spinach Namul (Salad)

Here's another Korean side dish that we often make. This one is incredibly fast, easy and nutritious -- my kind of dish! It's basically blanched spinach mixed with soy sauce, sesame oil, garlic, sesame seeds and a little sugar. I like to think of it as Popeye's azn-fied (why do I keep using that ridiculous word??) power food.

We had this along with our Korean barbecue chicken, which led to a delightfully delicious and abnormally unspicy meal ;)
