5 Delicious And Easy Asian Soup Ideas


I love soups! They are so warm and comforting. For me, if there is no soup during dinner, the meals feels incomplete. Perhaps it’s the upbringing of my Chinese mother, I have a lean towards soups with Asian flavours. They are so delicious and nutritious. Today, I share 5 delicious and easy Asian soup ideas. These are my go-tos that I have made time and time again. They are hard to fail and absolutely yummy!


Miso soup

This is a classic on the meal table of Japanese families. I quickly picked up on making this when I started living in Japan. Once you have miso paste, (which is the base for the soup) there are so many possibilities in terms of what you can add to the soup. Meat, fish, vegetables, tofu. Everything taste great with miso! And it’s super healthy too! Start with this basic miso soup recipe below.

Spicy Korean Pork Bone Soup

The most important ingredient in this soup is the Korean soybean paste called “doenjang”. You can get it in asian supermarkets or foreign food store. The pork bone needs some time to simmer to release their flavours but the wait is oh so worth it! The longer you let it simmer, the better! Good soup come for those who wait.

Kimchi pork belly soup

Another classic Korean soup that I love! It combines two of my favorite food, kimchi and pork belly. It’s such a great comfort food, especially for colder days.

Corn egg soup

This recipe calls for so little ingredients! It’s one of the first soups I learned to make from my mother. You can also make it vegetarian by using water/vegetable stock instead of chicken stock.

Pork Noodle Soup

To me, the cumin flavour is what makes this soup so addicting. With the noodles, this soup is a whole meal in itself that will fill you up. Slurp away!
