I don’t know what it is about Kewpie Mayonnaise, but I’m convinced it can make anything taste better. Oh wait. I know what it is. MSG. Apparently it also is made with egg yolks only and some other slightly different ingredients than American mayonnaise but the MSG I’m sure contributes. I know there is a lot of misinformation out there about MSG (and a lot of it driven by Xenophobia) but do the research and decide on your own. Also, it’s pure umami.
Halved some Brussels sprouts and cut the ends off them and tossed them in the sauce.
And baked at 425 until roasty, about 30 minutes (but my dish was very heavy stoneware). They were still a bit crunchy, but perfect in my opinion.
I could NOT stop eating these, and that’s something I rarely say about a vegetable!
