Why we skipped the potatoes?
Traditionally, chowder soup includes potatoes. We used beans instead. Carb-wise, the two recipes are equal. However, the high fiber delivered by beans is a compelling nutritional reason for the switch. Besides, we like the eye appeal of beans versus potatoes.
Why we use miso?
Great soup has a healthy portion of salt. Much of the rich flavor comes from salt. Miso is an excellent source of sodium as well as lending that distinctive savory flavor miso is known for.
