  • Slowly pour the clam broth into a large bowl, stopping when you reach the grit on the bottom. Rinse the pan and put it back on the stove. Pour the clam broth back into the saucepan and whisk in the miso until smooth. Bring the soup to a simmer over moderate heat. Add the tofu and cook for 4 minutes.

  • Return the clams to the soup to heat through. Sprinkle the scallions on top and serve immediately.
