Korean Spinach Soup

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mercy

Beef broth may be substituted for the water for a richer soup, but you may have to decrease the amount of salt.

This is fantastic, and so easy. I added a bit more sesame oil,a couple of generous splashes of fish sauce and half a teaspoon of minced chilli to spice it up a bit. My fussy teenager loves it.
