3 tablespoons Kikkoman® Less Sodium Soy Sauce
2 cups green lentils, rinsed

directions

  1. Heat ground Italian sausage over medium heat in a Dutch oven. Brown for 8 minutes using a spatula to break sausage into small pieces. Stir in onion, celery and carrots. Continue to cook for 5 minutes longer.
  2. Add tomato paste, stock, and soy sauce to pot. Stir well. Bring to a boil. Stir in lentils. Simmer for 20-25 minutes uncovered, until vegetables are tender, and liquid has reduced.
  3. Turn heat off and stir in fresh parsley. Ladle soup into bowls and serve hot with extra parsley and crusty bread.

Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
