Delicious Manila Clam Miso Soup

Delicious Manila Clam Miso Soup

This is a standard miso soup. The broth from the clams makes this so delicious you don't even need dashi soup stock.

Ingredients: 2 servings

Manila clams
150-200 g
2 cups
1-1 1/2 tablespoons
Green onion or scallions
to taste


1. After de-gritting the clams, rub the shells together to remove any dirt.
2. Combine the water and clams in a pot, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce to low-medium heat, and simmer while skimming any scum from the surface.
3. Reduce the heat to low once the clams open up, then add the miso. Sprinkle in some green onion or scallions to taste.
