      We loved this! What a nice change from my normal way of fixing spinach. Low sodium soy sauce works fine and even frozen spinach (thawed and squeezed dry) works great too!

      When she says one POUND of spinach, she isn't kidding. If you're going the baby spinach route, like I did, purchase a bit more than what you think is a pound. It cooks down,and you'll want A LOT of this. Tasted exactly like the banchan you get at any korean bbq in k-town, los angeles. PERFECT!

      Excellent! I washed the spinach and stir-fried it, without oil, in my wok with just the residual water on the leaves to steam/stir-fry them. I drained the water by tipping the wok over the sink and using the back of a wooden spoon to press the leaves. Also, I left out the garlic and onions and decreased the sesame oil to 1 tsp. (a little of that goes a long way for our tastes). This was SO husband says it reminds him of one of his favorite Japanese dishes, Goma Ae (a good thing). Thanks for posting this recipe jelisa, it's a new favorite for us.
