Asari Miso Soup (Miso Soup with Clams)

June 4, 2022


Miso soup with Manila clams is a simple Japanese dish. It’s so flavorful, so easy to make, and so delicious!

No one I know doesn’t like Miso soup, the Japanese soup that is often provided with Japanese lunch combinations (bento boxes) in the US. My favorite dish is miso soup. Using only the most basic ingredients, this drink is light and refreshing.

When the weather becomes chilly here in the northern hemisphere, I need a steaming bowl of miso soup. One of the most comforting foods.

If you’re looking for a somewhat fancier version of ordinary Miso soup, this is it! Clumps are an excellent addition since they offer an immediate flavor boost to the classic dish by imparting their salty flavor. Soups with more clams are better for me because I’m a huge fan of the seafood.

This Asari Miso Soup is excellent for a quick lunch or dinner because it only took me 15 minutes to make it. Including steaming rice is optional. Check out my Japanese dishes if you’re a fan of the cuisine.

  • 56 g of Buna Shimeiji mushroom
  • 2 tablespoons of Dashi-flavored red or white Miso paste
  • 3 to 4 cups of water
  • ½ small cubes of block soft tofu
  • ½ pound of Manila Clams
  • Chopped scallions


  1. Begin boiling the water. Add the soft tofu and the mushroom. When all of the clams have opened, continue boiling for another 2 minutes or so.
  2. Chopsticks or a ladle are ideal for stirring in the miso, which should be added after the heat has been turned off.
  3. The scallion should be placed on top of the dish before serving it hot with the rice.
