Being Japanese,miso soup is my comfort food. Luckily my husband loves miso soup so I cook miso soup often. Also he loves any kinds of chowder. To make him happier, I added oyster which is his favorite and I added miso and almond milk as a substitute for cream which are healthier and taste is much better!
