Mieum (hangul: 미음; hanja: ; literally "rice drink"), in Korean cuisine, is a gruel created by grinding rice or millet to an almost-powder state and boiling with water. It is usually fed to patients when they are not able to swallow easily, as well as to babies. Jujubes, ginseng, and dried shelled chestnuts are usually used as ingredients. The mieum is boiled with plenty of water, strained with a net, salted and eaten.
