CLEAR SOUP (SUIMONO)

Ingredients:
Regular strength chicken broth or Dashi - 3 cups
Soy sauce - 1 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Garnishes

Method:

  • Prepare dashi and pour in a deep bottle; let stand undisturbed 30 minutes for sediment to settle; carefully pour off the clear liquid and use that in the bottom for other cooking.
  • Heat the broth with the soy sauce and salt to taste, just to a simmer.
  • Serve in small, individual bowls, each containing your choice of garnishes.
  • The soup is sipped from the bowl.
  • Garnishes, particularly large ones, may then be picked up and eaten with chopsticks.
