It was a total mess last week I got hay fever and you know what happens in it, itchy, puffy, watery eyes and red, stuffy nose- OMG it’s terrible! I am not feeling to have anything, my taste buds are completely flat. Then Maa (Mother) came as a savior as she always does, she make a Japanese Clear Soup for me which is not a fill you- up- kind of meal but a delicious refreshing Asian soup. I think God bless every Mom with a caressing hand so that they can make anything special ! What do you feel………….! I am ok now and so want to share that easy yet delicious Japanese Clear Soup –Suimono's recipe with you.
Chicken stock 3 cups Soya sauce 1 teaspoon Dry sherry 2 table spoon(optional) Mushroom 3 to 4 thinly sliced Green onion strips 1 teaspoon Celery leaves 1teaspoon chopped Lemon Thinly sliced Carrot Thinly sliced Lemon peel strips few Tofu small chunks Cooked shrimp 4 to 5(optional)
In a large saucepan bring chicken stock to simmer. Stir in sherry and soya sauce. Simmer for few minutes. Top with all those other ingredients. Cook for another half minutes and you are done. If you want you can season with salt but this soup don’t need that as soya do all the work. Ladle the soup in small soup bowl and relish this delicious Japanese Clear Soup (Suimono).For me this is a total comfy, feel good soup and I hope you too will like the fresh flavors of Suimono.
For now Sayōnara (good bye)!
Be Happy And Stay Healthy.
