Japanese Clear Soup for #SoupSaturdaySwappers

Welcome to the June 2020 Soup Saturday Swappers event led by Wendy of A Day in the Life on FarmAre you interested in joining this great group of Soup Swappers? Request to join our Facebook group here. For today's event, Juli from Pandemonium Noshery invited us to make Asian or Asian-inspired soups. She said: "Anything from the Middle East, through China and Korea, even Russian could be included. Think Asian, authentic or "Inspired by" are all great!"

This is a light brothy soup perfect to serve at the beginning of your meal - similar to what you'd find at a hibachi restaurant! The broth takes on the flavors of the vegetables, and subtle flavors of ginger and garlic. It's beautiful and refreshing. I have to tell you - after we enjoyed this for lunch I used the rest to cook up a batch of rice for another dish and wow, it made the rice extra delicious!

Come see all of our Asian inspired soups!

2 teaspoons sesame oil
1 large sweet onion, peeled and cut into wedges

2 whole scallions, chopped
8 baby bella mushrooms, sliced thin

  3. Scoop out all of the solids and discard.

  1. Yum. All the great recipes this month, sigh. I have a feeling this is going to be a soup kind of week. I've got so much stock in the freezer I can play with, and some lovely mushrooms in the fridge that aren't spoken for in a meal plan.

  2. I Love the delicious, rich looking, broth you have here! I want to just grab a bowl for breakfast. That rice I'll bet was killer!

  3. This looks so good. I have never heard of Japanese Clear Soup but it is going on my menu now.

  4. All of those flavors! Your soup sounds amazing and it is really pretty!
