Japanese Clear Soup?
« on: March 02, 2007, 12:38:52 PM »
Leo and I absolutely adore the clear soup you get at good Japanese restaurants, unfortunately we are broker than a mirror tossed off the empire state building.

So does anyone have a recipe for clear soup? It's the soup with no tofu in it, it has long noodles and seaweed.

DH thinks you might be talking about Suimono (He loves Japanese food).

I found a recipe here:

Is this it??   :)

Might it be Udon noodle soup? Its long noodles, some greens, and a clear broth

The Suimono sounds right.

Thank you!

Most of the clear broths I've had in Japanese restaurants I think are a seaweed base.  You might try this:

The base in this are dried seaweed and shitake mushrooms.  The water is boiled with them and then they are removed and the other things are added in.

I'll try that. It sounds very close, too.

Thank you!
