  1. I’m not a big fan of miso soup because– guess what– it’s always missing something substantial in it! Since it would be awful to throw in a side of pork, I think clams are a great idea!

  2. You’re right…Everyone who I know and have tried Miso sop said they love it. And So do I. I should try to make with aka miso as you did.

  3. What? So easy? Okay, I’m heading to the supermarket to get me some miso paste. Got some mussels in the fridge that needs cooking :D

  4. I don’t care for miso soup, but I think it is the type of miso I buy. It has bits of barley or grains in it, so when I drink the soup, there are these particles at the end…blah. Your soup looks delicious :)

  5. Who wouldn’t like miso soup? I think of it as Japanese chicken soup for the soul! Your recipe is just my kind of dish — light, simple, elegant.

  6. What a superb idea to add the clams. I agree that it will add a nice briny flavor to the taste of the broth. Next to tom-yum-goong miso soup is a favorite.

  7. I’m a little intimidated by Japanese ingredients. My husband loooooves Japanese food though. Since he is around Japanese people a lot(works with Sony guys), he eats Japanese cuisine a lot too. If I made this soup, my husband would be very happy :)
    Thanks for posting such an easy recipe.

  8. i love miso soup and i have some instant sachets with me. however i have no idea what to put in it. im in hull, england and i cant find the tofu i need, nor any kind of seaweed or clams

    any suggestions on something easy to find that can be put in miso soup? other than the scallions of course

  9. miso, i don’t really like that (i think it’s the first time I say that on your blog ;-)) but the picture is so great! I should try! cheers!

    P.S I have tested your lemongrass chicken….just perfect!

  10. oh raa what a stunning idea to use clams in miso. holy cow that looks delicious. i need to steal this idea next tie i;m at the fish market, muah!

    so creative, i love it :)

  11. I’m one of those that LOVE miso soup. In fact, I had some last night during dinner at a Japanese restaurant with a friend who just arrived from the US. I love drinking it straight from the bowl the way it’s supposed to be done too. :) But I’ve never tried it with clams, and it makes perfect sense! It seems to resemble ‘halaan’ , my dad’s favorite clear clam soup.

  12. I rarely make miso soup for dinner because my husband tends to feel that it lacks substance. I can’t wait to try this one out on him!

  13. I love miso soup and your asari miso soup looks so damn good. I sure will make this using your asari miso soup recipe. It sounds easy enough.


  14. I add Gomasio, rice noodles, shitake mushrooms,ginger root, bok choy/tat soi/mustard greens to water and simmer for a few minutes, then add fresh basil, mung bean sprouts, and leafy greens like arugula or frisee after I’ve removed the soup pan from heat. I add live miso at the very end and serve with a little Tamari.


  15. I wonder where can i buy miso paste in kl n johor area..
    i’m hoping to be able to find one that is safe for muslims to eat..
