Natto Recipe for Beginners
This is a recipe for people who don't like natto. Natto is an ultra-healthy superfood. But many people say it's an acquired taste. I hope this simple and easy recipe, which masked the taste and smell of plain natto, will help you learn to love eating it!
- 2 packages natto
- 1/2 or 1 avocado
- 5-8 cherry tomatoes
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 1 tsp French dijon mustard
Cut avocado into bite-sized chunks inside it's skin. Set aside.
On a cutting board, cut cherry tomatoes into halves or bite-sized chunks. Set aside in a bowl.
Open the packages of natto. Using a spoon, or chopsticks, scoop natto into a bowl.
With a spoon, scoop avocado out of its shell with a spoon. Add to the bowl.
Add cherry tomatoes.
Gently mix ingredients together with chopsticks or a spoon.
In a small bowl, combine the mustard, balsamic vinegar, and extra virgin olive oil.*
Mix the dressing with a spoon or chopsticks.
Pour dressing on top of natto, avocado, and cherry tomatoes.
Optional: remove the whites from a raw egg.
Add yolk on top.*
*It's normal and safe to eat raw egg in Japan. In your home country, please consult with an expert before consuming raw egg because of the risk of salmonella.
*Adjust the amount of olive oil, vinegar, and mustard to your taste. I prefer extra mustard.
