Quick tips and snack ideas with Kikkoman

Every Kikkoman fan knows that soy sauce is a multi-purpose seasoning. And you can use it to prepare fabulous snacks that are incredibly simple to make. We’ve got a few suggestions for you. Surprised? Why not just try them out!

Maybe you’ve got your own creative ideas. You’re very welcome to send us an e-mail if you have any suggestions.

Breakfast eggs with Kikkoman

What do you put on your breakfast egg? Soy sauce is definitely worth a try. Simply add a few drops of soy sauce to your egg and enjoy. You can season all kinds of eggs with Kikkoman, whether they’re boiled, fried or scrambled. When you season scrambled egg with soy sauce, simply add it to the pan during the last minute of cooking.

Soy-sauce flavoured nuts and seeds

Cook pumpkin and sunflower seeds or walnuts in a pan and flavour them with soy sauce. Simply add three to four tablespoons of soy sauce to the cooked nuts or seeds. You can create an even more delicious flavour if you add a little honey to caramelise the nuts and seeds. They make a great topping for soups and salads or you can eat them on their own as a snack.

Guacamole à la Kikkoman

Guacamole is incredibly quick to make and it tastes delicious. Halve an avocado, remove the stone and scrape out the flesh into a bowl with a little fork. Flavour the dip with shallots, garlic, pepper and a generous splash of soy sauce. You’ll also need a dash of lemon juice to prevent the avocado from turning brown. And if you like it spicy, add a little chilli. Guacamole is ideal as a side dish with fried or grilled foods. And it’s also a gourmet treat as a dip for vegetable sticks.

Tuna baguette with soy sauce

Tuna makes a great spread for baguettes or ciabatta. If you’re using canned tuna, enhance the flavour by adding a few chopped onions or shallots, plus a generous dash of soy sauce. Spread it on the bread, top with lettuce leaves and a few cucumber slices and your delicious snack is ready to eat.

Vegetable sticks with soy sauce dip

Raw carrot, cucumber and bell pepper sticks taste best if you dip them. For example, in a little bowl of soy sauce. Even children love them.

Alternatively, mix together equal quantities of mayonnaise and natural yoghurt, then add roasted sesame seeds and soy sauce.

Shake it! With Kikkoman

You can even put soy sauce in a shake. Obviously, it doesn’t work with every sweet milk shake, but it tastes great in vegetable shakes. For example, soy sauce adds a beautiful full-bodied flavour to a pineapple and radish shake. To make shakes for 4 people, chop up the flesh of approx. 300 g ripe pineapple, blend it with 100 ml mineral water and chill. Peel 150 g radish and chop it up. Blend the radish with 100 ml mineral water and drain in a fine sieve. Pour the pineapple and radish juice into glasses, drizzle with soy sauce and serve ice cold.

A dash of soy sauce in the cooking water

Add a generous dash of soy sauce into the water when you’re boiling potatoes, pasta, beans or asparagus so that they can absorb the full-bodied flavour as the cook. Another bonus is that you don’t need to add any salt. And steamed foods also benefit from a tablespoon of soy sauce in the steamer water.

Extra special salad dressings

Replacing salt (or part of it) with Kikkoman soy sauce adds an extra special flavour kick as well as bringing out the natural flavours of the other seasonings and herbs.

Things on toast

Elevate the flavour of cheese on toast by mixing a sprinkling of soy sauce with grated cheese. Spread over the toast and grill until golden and melted.

You can do the same with that British favourite – beans on toast. Open a can of baked beans and add soy sauce to taste. Heat in a saucepan,  pile on top of hot toast and tuck in!
