His Mother's Dish: Chinese Style Spinach and Egg Stir Fry

My boyfriend's mother used to make this for his bentos a lot when he was in middle school and high school. I tried re-creating it for him.
The Chinese style flavor is very good!

Ingredients

Spinach
1 bunch
Eggs
2
Chicken soup stock granules
1 teaspoon
Salt
2/3 to 1 teaspoon
Water
1 teaspoon
Sesame oil
2 teaspoons
Toasted sesame seeds
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. Blanch the spinach in plenty of hot water.
2. When the spinach is wilted, drain well, squeeze out, and cut into pieces.
3. Combine the chicken soup stock, salt, and water.
4. Heat the sesame oil in a frying pan, add the spinach and combined mixture from Step 3, and stir fry. Push the spinach to one side of the pan, add the beaten eggs to the open side and cook it quickly.
5. When the egg is soft set, mix it together with the spinach. Add the sesame seeds at the end to finish. The egg is fluffy and delicious!

Story Behind this Recipe

When I made spinach namul for my boyfriend's bento, he said "If you add an egg to this, it would be the same as a dish my mother used to make", so - I tried it out.
