Yes. We have moved to the blogosphere! :)
I've been intending to for a while now since my trip to South Korea involved searching high and low (it wasn't that bad really) for halal-friendly options. And to me, that meant, no pork or lard in the menu (no need for 'sertu', hopefully), seafood or vegetarian options in said menu and if the whole place was strictly seafood even better!
I do have to admit that I was a bit less stringent with bakeries though. (Sigh) But I did avoid the meat options. Hopefully I'll do a series of posts on said food finds for those who wish to visit S. Korea.
Meanwhile, here's a snapshot of the homemade meal I spruced up for dinner last night.
Shortgrain brown rice, heated up mexican chicken, stir fried vegetables and korean spinach namul/banchan.
By the way, that namul has been my favouritest thing to eat now. Finally eating my spinach!
Recipe: Spinach Namul Sigeumchi Namul
One large packet of spinach (washed/ cleaned)
1 tsp minced garlic
1/2 tsp honey
2 tsp light soy sauce
one stalk spring onion (chopped fine)
2-3 tsp sesame oil
1 tsp sesame seeds
Bring a pot of water to a boil. Blanch the spinach for 30-40seconds)
Drain the water and run with cold water to stop the cooking.
Squeeze out all the liquid.
In a bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients.
On a cutting board/ using a scissor cut the spinach (I usually make 2-3 chops)
mix the spinach with the dressing thoroughly.
Enjoy with rice and other side dishes!
On a final note, with Singapore's haze situation getting worse, going to work is seriously a crime. Really. (Scratches eyes)
