Osuimono refers to Japanese clear soup. It’s a contrast to miso soup, another Japanese favorite soup dish.
Osuimono is usually made of the three very basic ingredients: water, salt, and garnish. Vegetables, fish and other seafood can be added as preferred.
Instant osuimono come in regular variants at very affordable prices. Special versions that contain cute-shaped and higher quality ingredients are also available.
