A great Korean summer dish is kong-guk-su, it's make with soy milk, some salt, cucumber, and rice vermicelli noodles. Very simple, superbly flavorful!
What you need:
*1 cup dried soy beans (can be more like 3+ cups)
*ice cubes
*1 cucumber (sliced thinly into strips~save the cucumber juice though!)
*thin vermicelli rice noodles (as much as you want..)
*salt, adjusted to your taste
*black sesame seeds

What to do:
1. soak the soy beans overnight, drain them then put in pot, remove the casings
2.Boil the beans for 15 minutes or so
3. Rinse the boiled beans in cold water, cool down, and remove more skins...MAKE SURE THE SKINS ARE GONE!
4. Put 1 cup of the clean soybeans into the blender and blend until very fine and liquid. skins are removed.
5. Add 2 trp of Salt and blend more...get this to as liquidy as possible.
6. Pour the soup into bowls and add ice cubes into each bowl
7. Boil some water and once the water is boiling add the noodles.
8. While the noodles are cooking, slice up the cucumber and place all of it into a bowl. 
9. Once the noodles are cooked, rinse with cold water, you want these noodles to be cold.
10. Put the cold noodles into the soup and add 2+ Tbs of the cucumber on top of the noodles. Sprinkle on some black sesame seeds and divide the cucumber juice between all the bowls!

Enjoy the summer dish!!
