Spinach Moochim - Version 1.0 - (시금치무침)

This is probably one of the easiest Korean side dish out there, but I figured there might be people who might still not know how to make it. First start off by filling a medium sized pot with water and bringing it to a strong boil.

While the water is boiling, start off with one bunch of spinach, make sure to cut off the tips and wash it thoroughly.

In a small bowl mix together the following: 1/2 tb sesame oil, 1/2 tb gook ganjang, 1/2 tsp minced garlic, 1/2 tb sesame seed, and a handful of green onions.

When the water is boiling STRONG, throw in the clean spinach and just flip it around for a little bit. The spinach will cook immediately (less than a minute) so stay close and just mix it around.

Immediately remove from the heat and rinse in cold water.

Grab a cheese cloth (or a heavy duty paper towel) and squeeze out all the excess liquid. I divided it into thirds at this point to get as much of the moisture out as possible.

Finally, just mix it with the ingredients above...

And you're ready to serve~

I also make this using soy bean paste and tofu...I will post that up next time.


  1. this is one of my favorite banchans and one of the few that i know how to make! looks good!

  2. Made this side too, and really liked it. The smell of the sesame oil is just heavenly. It was great with any rice dish. Had it 5 days straight.
