Ingredients

Recipe Description: 
Shikeumchi Namul is a Korean side dish made with spinach. Traditionally the spinach is boiled in water and excess water is squeezed out of the spinach. Spinach is dressed with a fragrant dressing of ginger, garlic, sesame oil and other seasonings. Cooking the spinach in the Saladmaster 1.5 Qt. (1.4 L) Sauce Pan preserves nutrients and vitamins that would otherwise be lost during boiling, resulting in a more delicious and nutritious dish.
