¼ yellow onion, diced
2 tablespoons whole milk
1 tablespoon Kikkoman® Umami Joy Sauce

⅛ teaspoon black pepper

Tuscan Bean Stew
3 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra to garnish
½ yellow onion, diced
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
½ teaspoon black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 – 32 ounce can of crushed tomatoes
1 bunch Tuscan kale (also knowns as Dinosaur), chopped into 1” pieces
2 – 15 ounce cans of cannellini beans, drained
½ cup Kikkoman® Umami Joy Sauce
½ cup grated parmesan cheese, plus extra to garnish
¼ cup basil, chopped
Zest of 1 lemon


Prepare Meatballs:
1. In a medium bowl, combine turkey meatball ingredients and mix until ingredients are well incorporated.
2. With lightly oiled hands, roll mixture into approximately ten 2” balls.
3. Heat a lightly oiled stock pot or dutch oven over medium heat.
4. Add meatballs and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until browned. Remove meatballs from the pot and set aside.

Make Stew:
1. Add olive oil to the stockpot and sauté diced onion in meatball drippings over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes until soft.
2. Add garlic, black pepper, and Italian seasoning, and cook for approximately one minute, stirring often.
3. Add tomato paste and cook for 5 minutes, stirring often.
4. Deglaze the pot with chicken broth, scraping the bottom of the pan to release any caramelized bits.
5. Add crushed tomatoes, kale, beans, meatballs and Kikkoman® Umami Joy Sauce. Let the stew simmer on medium heat for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
6. Reduce heat to low and stir in parmesan cheese, basil and lemon zest. Cover and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
7. When ready, serve stew in individual bowls. Garnish each bowl with a sprinkle of parmesan and a drizzle of olive oil, if desired.


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.
