Mmmmiso Soup!

Who doesn't like the earthy, savory flavors of a simple miso soup!

Served in every Japanese restaurant as an accompaniment to bento or sushi lunches/dinners, most people are unaware of how easy it is to make a home. Packed with vitamins and nutrients, miso is an ingredient used in many traditional Japanese dishes. You can find white and red miso paste in most Asian supermarkets and a tub of it will cost you about $5.00 (which will last for a very long time!)

To celebrate our love for all things miso, Bamboo Izakaya is sharing a simple and terrific miso soup recipe with you. Ready? Grab your miso paste and let's get started!

Miso Soup with Asari Clams

Serves 4


  • 4 cups dashi broth (or water) 
  • 3 1/2 tbsp white miso paste
  • 350 grams asari (Manila) clams
  • 2 tbps scallions, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp onions, finely chopped


  1. Using a brush, scrub the clams to get rid of any sand and other impurities. Soak them in salt water for half an hour (to release any extra dirt or sand).
  2. Bring dashi broth to a boil then add miso paste and chopped onions. Mix well until miso paste has completely dissolved. Turn the heat down to low (simmer).
  3. Add clams and cook for a minute. 
  4. Add chopped scallion, turn the heat off and serve.
