Eat Your Heart Out: Hobakjuk, South Korea’s Golden Pumpkin Porridge

The perfect remedy for a cold day, or the common cold itself, Hobakjuk is a velvety, Korean-style pumpkin porridge often enjoyed as a bone-warming desert during the fall & winter months. While some western countries turn to chicken noodle soup, in Korea this rejuvenating porridge is instead served to those recovering from an illness or other health issues, as the vitamins and minerals within have long made it one of the country’s traditional healing foods. Whatever the occasion may be, there is never a shortage of reasons for you to dip your spoon into this creamy comfort food.
