Does anyone really like spinach? It’s just one of those things you eat to try to be healthy. Somehow it’s bland and bitter at the same time, but most of all, it’s just plain boring. You’re basically eating leaves at this point.

However, one TikToker named Sarah Chetrit (@sarchetrit) has a way of making spinach more exciting and genuinely taste good.

Yes, that’s right. Spinach can taste good! Bet you never thought you’d see the words ‘spinach’ and ‘taste good’ in the same sentence.

In Korean culture, this spinach dish is called sigeumchi muchim, according to Sarah. It consists of boiled spinach with soy sauce banchan.

It is a very popular and common side dish among Koreans because it’s simple and easy to make and pairs well with other Korean food staples.

So let’s check out the recipe from her viral video. It has garnered over three million views, so it’s got to be good!

Here’s how to make this traditional Korean side dish:

Start by blanching an entire bag of spinach for approximately thirty seconds. Next, drain the spinach and immediately rinse the leaves with cold water. Pick up the pile of spinach and squeeze it until all the water comes out.

In a medium-sized bowl, mix together one tablespoon of soy sauce, one tablespoon of sesame oil, a teaspoon of sugar, half a teaspoon of black pepper, and a whole clove of minced garlic.
