Today is the beginning of Boknal (복날) in Korea. Boknal is a month-long weather pattern that brings the hottest part of the year to Korea.
Koreans prefer to consume nutritious foods during Boknal, in order to preserve their energy and strength. Boknal's first day is known as Chobok and usually the Koreans eat Samgyetang or Ginseng Chicken Soup on this day! It's assumed that this ginseng chicken soup cools the body on hot and humid days.

#첫줄#아르벨라식탁 오늘 우리집 저녁 메뉴. 새로온 이쁜 애기랑 잘 어울리는 음식으로.. 반찬 여러개 필요없는 메뉴로~ 여름철 보양식 삼계탕.. 밭에서 막 따온 애호박 송송 채썰어서 들기름 마늘 소금만 넣고 살짝 볶아 오이지와 함께.. 오이지 하나 있으니 든든.. 그런데 남자1호는 한접 더 담구자고 욕심 내신다.. 아 진짜 피곤한 스퇄.. ㅠㅠ . . . #화소반#온더테이블#한식기 #여름철보양식#삼계탕 #애호박볶음 #오이지#밥반찬 #homecook#instafood #koreanfood #instadaily
The interior of the little chicken is stuffed with glutinous rice, shooting ginseng, and jujubes. The chicken is then cooked in a transparent stock and served in a single pot made of earthenware. Its actually pretty tasty, more on the bland side, which after all the spicy food I eat here is sometimes good for the glands. In reality, great as an alternative to our regular "chicken noodle soup" when you're ill on a cold winter day.
Yes, on the hottest day of the year it's hard to wrap your mind around eating and drinking hot soup.
But hey, why not try it for yourself? You may find it another great Korean food to try in every summer!
