Miso is a traditional Japanese fermented food that is now well known throughout the world. With MISO POTA, using miso as the base, various other nutritious ingredients are blended and made into a potage – a type of thick soup that has its origins in French cuisine. The select ingredients include Japanese items such as tofu and shijimi (freshwater clam) as well as Western ones such as beets and tomato, in a reflectiion of the modern diet. Because the ingredients are thoroughly simmered and carefully stirred, their nutritional richness is preserved along with their beautiful natural color. Different types of miso are selected for each soup as well, so you can enjoy the warm marriage of the ingredients’ natural flavor and the subtle varieties of miso essence. An ideal part of Japan’s trending onkatsu lifestyle (warming the body for better health such as improved circulation), this potage soup will help soothe both mind and body.
MISO POTA blends miso, Japan’s super food, with vegetables and other ingredients to make a soup that is easy for foreign people who might be unaccustomed to Japanese food to try, and safe for small children with poor chewing skills. Most of the soups use broth made from vegetables, making them perfect for vegetarians as well as for those who are busy and haven’t eaten properly and are looking for healthy omotenashi meal.
