This delicious breakfast staple will be a revelatory experience as long as you use good quality ingredients.
In our house this dish is usually served simply as per the recipe, but sometimes salmon is added so feel free to try it in different ways. You could also use nori instead of kombu and add mitsuba or negi on top but try it simply first to get a feel for the flavour interactions.

Miso soup with clams

This quintessential Japanese soup is great for hangovers, but seriously embodies the essence of Japanese cuisine in its simplicity and detail. You'll find it both in sushi bars and at home, and it is not only very tasty but its healthy and super fast to execute. There is no rule to the type of miso you should use, if you like red or hatcho miso the taste will be more focused on that and less on the clams but it is better to enjoy it with light, rice miso . A touch of togarashi or white pepper will surely do no harm either...
Go get it!
