  • 6 cups quartered Brussels sprouts
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 green onion , chopped
  • ¼ cup Kikkoman Gluten Free Soy Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons Kikkoman Rice Vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • ¼ cup water

  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes , or more depending on spice level preferred
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • Preheat oven to 450° F. Toss Brussels sprouts with olive oil and place in a single layer on a baking sheet. Roast until tender and slightly crisp, about 25 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.
