Number of Servings: 8


    -uncooked soybeans
    -Roasted sesame seeds
    -Oriental Style Noodles(makguksu)
    -4 cups water


-Soak the beans for about 4 hrs. Next, drain them and boil them for about 1 hr until the beans are soft, but not mushy! This may take up to 2 hrs, but for me, boiling them over medium heat for about 1 hr after soaking usually suffices.

-Next, drain and rinse them in cold water. Submerge the beans in cold water.

-Place half of the boiled beans in a blender with just enough water that the beans are submerged. Add 2 tbsp. of salt and 2 tbsp. roasted sesame seeds. Puree until you end up with a nice pastey consistency with no chunks and set aside.

-Repeat the above step with the remaining ingredients.

-Boil noodles, rinse and drain in cold water, and set aside.

-Cut cucumber into slivers and set aside.

-In a large serving bowl, add 1 serving noodles, and cover with the cold soybean broth until noodles are mostly covered. Add ice cubes and dilute the broth with water until you attain a consistency you like, but don't add too much water as it ruins the flavor add the ice cubes do melt adding to the water ratio.

-Top with the slivered cucumber and salt to taste. Serve with Kimchi for a delicious cold korean noodle dish perfect for hot summer days!
