Seven soups every Saturday: Japanese soup recipes


For the past week, Ted and I have had a very special house guest. Nagisa is the teenage daughter of our friend Rika and her husband Ichiro, who live in a tiny village in western Japan. After graduating from high school in a suburb of Vancouver, where she spent this year as an exchange student, Nagisa came to Rhode Island to hang out with us and see the sights. We did go to a sushi restaurant one day, but apart from that, it was all-American food all week.

Now that Nagisa is on her way home to Japan, I'm craving soups from her country. Seven Japanese soup recipes caught my eye:

Asari miso soup (miso soup with clams), from Rasa Malaysia

Zohsui (Japanese rice soup), from Just Hungry

Japanese vegetable soup with fresh ginger, from Albion Cooks

Red miso soup, from No Recipes

Japanese udon noodle soup with vegetables and tofu, from New Asian Cuisine

Shiruko -- Japanese mochi and azuki bean dessert soup, from The Well-Seasoned Cook

Japanese kabocha pumpkin soup, from Chubbypanda

Most of my experience with Japanese soups is just what I've had as an appetizer before sushi, but I do love the light flavors and crispy vegetable combination. I am sure Nagisa had a wonderful introduction to the U.S. from her visit with you.

Susan, so many things I want to try here.

Kalyn, I do love starting meals in Japanese restaurants with a small bowl of miso soup. We had great fun with Nagisa and I hope she returns to visit soon.
