Sometimes we just want something hot, nutritious and, well, brothy. Chili and meaty soups have their time and place, but then there are those nights when you just want something delicious, thin in texture, and warm filling your belly.
Japanese Clear Broth Soup is the perfect recipe for those nights when you are chilled to your bones, and want to nestle in with some hot soup and toasted bread.
Today’s recipe is full of healthy nutrients and vitamins because it is primarily made of meat broths and vegetables simmered together over a long period of time to create a deep rich flavor.
In a Japanese broth soup, the vegetables are removed so the soup is clear, and garnishes like scallions and thinly sliced mushrooms are added to the top.
