Hi Jenn! Thanks for pointing that out– it must be an error in the calculations. The rice contributes most of the carbs in this recipe, and that’s around 22g per serving.

You mention adding “soy sauce” but it’s not listed in the recipe ingredients. How much soy sauce should be used?

Hi Emily, thanks for pointing this out! That’s actually an error in the recipe, based on an older version of the soup. I updated the recipe to be current and correct.
