A traditional Korean recipe. Since it is a very elegant, flavorful recipe, it is said that only high class was able to enjoy this in the olden days. Our family enjoys this soup for a meal - especially for a breakfast with pickle and salad.

It didn't get thick enough but you can add rice flour to make it thicker. Also honey makes it tasty. Read More

Really interesting flavor on this - I used chicken stock for the first run but I think I might try water for the second. I put my rice and pine nuts through the food processor since I'm currently sans blender and liked the texture of the final mix so I think I'll just stick with that. I shared with a friend who kind of likened the flavor to something close to oatmeal. I'm not sure I quite agree - this is subtley sweet in a way similar to oatmeal but it's also something quite a bit different. I will definitely be enjoying this again! Read More
