  1. In Korean, kong means bean, while guksu is one word for noodle, so kongguksu is a summertime dish made from wheat flour noodles and cold soy bean milk broth. The wheat flour adds to its chewiness, and the soup has a thick, milky, creamy consistency. Sometimes more ingredients are added to make it creamier, and it may contain ice to keep it chilled. Many variations exist, but traditionally it contains cucumbers and ground peanuts or pine nuts, or parboiled potatoes and other vegetables or even fruits such as pear or watermelon.
