Natto

Home Food Natto

[noun.]

Natto is a traditional Japanese food made from fermented soybeans. It is high is protein and Vitamin K. It’s also a good source of iron. Anyway, Natto has a pretty high nutritional value. (More information is available here.)

Note: Natto is an acquired taste. It has a powerful and distinctive smell that some people might not be very fond of. Its flavor is very strong and it also has a very sticky consistency.

I’m very adventurous when it comes to trying new foods. Therefore, I made a trip to the Asian market and picked up a package of natto. This one I purchased comes in a pack of three Styrofoam containers. It also comes with mini packets of soy sauce and mustard which can be used as seasoning for the natto. The pink packaging really caught my eye. Plus, this one says it’s good for women!

Add the soy sauce and mustard and mix well.
Eat seasoned natto with rice.
