Miso with Steamed Clams, Kalua Pig and Spinach

Here is a simple miso broth based soup that I adapted for a menu I was working on for restaurant in South Florida, it was an instant hit! I wanted to share this recipe with my readers, particularly @Fujimama, one of my absolute favorite food & recipe bloggers, who posted a recipe for a tasty sounding miso-steamed clam soup on her blog (here) earlier today… enjoy the recipe & let me know what you think, photos to follow!

Miso with Steamed Clams, Kalua Pig and Spinach

Miso Broth:
3 cups dashi soup stock
3-4 tbsps miso paste

Put dashi soup stock in a pan and bring to a boil.  Scoop out some soup stock from the pan and dissolve miso in it. Gradually return the miso mixture in the soup. Stir the soup gently. Remove from heat and add chopped green onion. Remember not to boil the soup after you put miso in.
