Had to try this because my allergies have gotten so bad, I have dark circles under my eyes from rubbing them continuously, the skin there is raw and sensitive to touch. Do this on an empty stomach in the morning for 15-20min. Please be warned that you will want to gag but I pushed through as the consistency and smell of the oil tamed down. Brush your teeth right after. Today was my first day but I noticed my teeth felt cleaner and I didn’t feel the need to use Listerine afterward because my mouth just felt CLEAN.Oil pulling has plenty more benefits then just oral hygiene and that is why I am trying it. Please do your research also.

Jeon-Bok-Jook is the korean word for the abalone porridge and it is a special treat in korean cuisine. Abalone is very tasty but it can get super pricy and hard to find in a regular grocery shop. So I’ve replaced it with the king oyster mushroom which tastes so much like scallop, sometimes even better than abalone or scallop when cooked right! In the seafood mix, there are mussels, shrimps and squids in it and they give out enough seafood flavor in the porridge. This is a super simple recipe and the only thing to be careful about is to pay attention when you’re simmering the porridge. Do not leave the pot unattended! You should watch it bubble up and stir it so the rice and the glutenous liquid get mixed well and it’ll get thickened evenly. A bit of sesame oil and the york of the soft boiled egg add more rich and creamy flavor,  and the seasoned seaweed adds more seafoody saltiness and a bit a of crunch which goes so well with this porridge. This is one of my favorite savory treats. 

If you are a vegetarian or allergic to seafood, you can still make this by taking out the seafood and the fish sauce and replacing them with more mushrooms and the soy sauce.
