1/2 pound dry great Northern beans
2 tablespoons olive oil

1 can (14 oz.) vegetable broth
1 bay leaf
1/2 cup Kikkoman Roasted Garlic Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce
1/2 pound mustard greens or kale

Grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Sort and rinse beans; place in large bowl. Pour in 2 quarts cold water; cover and soak beans overnight. Drain beans.
  2. Heat oil in Dutch oven or large saucepan over high heat. Add carrots and onion; sauté 3 minutes, or until onion is translucent.
  3. Stir in broth, bay leaf, roasted garlic teriyaki sauce, beans and 4 cups water; cover and bring to boil. Reduce heat; simmer 45 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, discard stems and center ribs from mustard greens; cut leaves into 2-inch pieces. Stir mustard greens into soup. Cook, covered, 25 minutes longer, or until beans are tender. Discard bay leaf.
  5. Spoon soup into serving bowls; top with Garlic Croutons and cheese.

    *Garlic Croutons: Cut eight 1/2-inch-thick slices French bread into 3/4-inch cubes; place in large bowl. Beat together 1/4 cup olive oil and 2 Tbsp. Kikkoman Roasted Garlic Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce with fork until blended. Pour over bread cubes; toss to evenly coat all pieces. Turn out onto large baking sheet. Bake in 350°F oven 6 minutes. Stir and bake 6 minutes longer, or until golden brown and crispy. Cool completely on baking sheet on wire rack. Makes about 4 cups.


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.
