Osuimono (lit. “things to sip”) is a clear soup that appears simple at a glance, but can be hard to master given the delicate and subtle flavors of its fresh high-quality ingredients. It’s typically served at the end of a meal, before the main course, or as the base for the Japanese New Year’s soup called ozōni.
This luxurious osuimono includes three unique Japanese ingredients: yuba (sweet and buttery tofu skins that are made by warming a bowl of soybean milk and skimming off the top film), mitsuba (also known as Japanese parsley or honeywort with a fresh bitterness reminiscent of celery leaves) and yuzu (Japan’s beloved tart yet sweet citrus fruit). These ingredients are combined with a bonito dashi (soup stock), soy sauce and a pinch of salt to draw out the flavors.
