This unique twist on sweet potato soup with miso is full exotic flavors and warming spices. A few specialty ingredients make this easy, comforting soup extra special.
Miso paste is a fermented soy bean paste most often used in Japanese cooking. It gives the soup a rich, umami flavor. I can usually find miso paste in the refrigerated section of my regular grocery store near the yogurt or tofu.
Togarashi is a Japanese spice blend that adds a ton of flavor to the chickpeas used in the topping of this soup. If you can’t find it, add a pinch of red pepper flakes and some white sesame seeds to the chickpeas as they cook.
