I can’t seem to find anyone who doesn’t like Miso soup—the ubiquitous Japanese soup that is commonly served with Japanese lunch combos (bento boxes) in the United States. I am a big fan of miso soup. It’s light, invigorating with the simplest of ingredients. I love slurping Miso soup—especially when it turns cold in the western hemisphere. It’s such a comfort food.
This is my Asari Miso Soup, or a deluxe version of plain Miso soup. The addition of clams infuses the traditional serving with a tint of brininess of the clams—an ingredient that perks up the taste immediately. I love clams so the more clams in the miso soup, the better the taste.
It took me less than 15 minutes to Asari Miso Soup; it’s perfect for a quick lunch meal or light dinner. Just don’t forget the steamed rice. If you love Japanese food, check out all my Japanese recipes.
