Story Behind this Recipe
Namul typically only uses sesame oil and salt, but I prepared them with a subtle sweetness so that my kids would eat it, too.
When seasoning, first add only 1/2 tablespoon sugar, then adjust to taste. Salt is a key ingredient to enhance the sweetness, so be sure to adjust the amount of salt depending on your desired degree of sweetness. Use just enough sugar to make it ever so subtly sweet.
