Thinking about the brine inspired us to bring the brine to other foods, too! Check out the Roasted Brined Brussels Sprouts below. Kikk up your everyday vegetable with a ¼ cup of Kikkoman. We promise it’ll become a family favorite!


2 pounds Brussels sprouts
2 quarts water
½ cup kosher salt
½ cup sugar
¼ cup Kikkoman Soy Sauce
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon black pepper


Preheat oven to 400°. Trim stems and remove wilted leaves from Brussels sprouts; rinse under cold water. In a large bowl, combine the water, salt, sugar and soy sauce, stirring until all of the sugar and salt have dissolved. Add sprouts to the brine mixture (make sure they are submerged) Brine for 1 hour. Drain the Brussels sprouts, do not rinse. Toss the sprouts with olive oil and black pepper. Bake in an uncovered baking dish for 35 to 40, until crisp on the outside and tender on the inside, or desired doneness.
