Whenever my siblings or I felt lethargic, my mom would whip up a pot of this soup. Beef was a luxury for us growing up, but she knew that clams were loaded with iron and could fortify us with the energy required to be the “mathletes” we (at least everyone but me) were destined to become. This is a delicious soup that lets the flavor of the clams shine through, with just a bit of red wine, garlic and ginger to flavor the delicate broth, dotted with crisp and tender slices of bok choy.
