Miso Soup with Clams and Tofu

My husband, Matt, does have his signature dishes. I've never heard of this soup until he brought this up when we were shopping for dinner the other night.

And, oh boy, this soup was tasty, filling, satisfying, invigorating, simple-to-made and beautiful. As I can't seem to find anyone who doesn't like miso soup, this deluxe version is definitely a superb comfort food.

(serves 2, generously)
Ingredients:
1 pound fresh clams, scrubbed and washed
4 cups water
2 tbsp miso paste or to taste
1/2 block soft tofu, cut into small cubes
1 tbsp chopped green onion
a handful of thinly sliced dried seaweed

Directions:
Bring water to boil. Add miso paste and stir until it completely dissolved.

Add clams and soft tofu cubes, boil until all clams are open.

Top with chopped green onion and dried seaweed.

Serve hot plain or with steamed rice.
