Soups are easy to digest, nourishing and endlessly changing. The trick is to know a few simple base recipes and then learn to vary them for your liking or needs. This Japanese Clear Broth soup is family favorite and one that Clara makes often for herself at college. It’s so simple and adaptable. I also use this recipe as a part of a gentle spring or autumn cleanse, or to treat those who are weak or ill. Use fewer ingredients and keep the recipe simpler if you are fighting illness or have very weakened digestion. It’s beautiful for breakfast too!
