kikkoman products used:


6 cups carrots, coarsely chopped and peeled
2 tablespoons Kikkoman® Sesame Oil
1 teaspoon garlic, chopped
3 cups vegetable stock (add more for a thinner soup)
1 teaspoon ginger, minced
½ cup full fat canned unsweetened coconut milk
½ teaspoon sea salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons tahini paste

For za’atar peanuts 
1 cup raw unsalted peanuts
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon za’atar seasoning

For garnish
Za’atar peanuts
1 lime, sliced into wedges
½ cup cilantro, chopped


  1. To make za’atar roasted peanuts: heat oven to 325ºF and line a medium-sized baking sheet with parchment paper. Stir together peanuts and olive oil in a small mixing bowl. Add za’atar seasoning and stir to coat peanuts. Pour onto baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes. Stir and bake 10 minutes longer. Cool peanuts at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  2. Bring oven to 400ºF and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Combine carrots, sesame oil and garlic in a large mixing bowl. Use hands to coat. Pour onto baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes.
  3. Transfer roasted carrots to a blender and add vegetable stock, ginger, coconut milk, salt and pepper. Blend soup until smooth. For a thinner soup, add an additional ½-1 cup of vegetable stock.
  4. Transfer soup to a 4-quart pot. Heat soup on stovetop over medium heat until it reaches a low boil, about 8 minutes. Stir in tahini. Serve hot garnished with peanuts, lime wedges and cilantro.


Even people who love soy sauce and use it all the time are often surprised to learn what it is and how it’s made. We make ours from just four simple ingredients—water, soybeans, wheat, and salt. Those ingredients are transformed through a traditional brewing process—much like making wine or beer—that has remained unchanged for centuries.
