Yes, I know its an acquired taste and quite stinky, but I love the stuff and yes I eat it for the health benefits but I also eat it for the taste (believe it or not).
These are my favorite ways to prepare it:
-stir fried with rice, egg, scallions, karashi, soy sauce, and cut up korean seaweed
-mixed with sliced raw okra, quail egg yolk, katsuoboshi, karashi, sauce packet it comes with, and sliced green onions. Iput all of this on top of some fresh white rice and pick it up with squares of korean seaweed.
-I just finished eating this: cubed radish kimchi (I took whole radish kimchi + their tops and died them up), karashi, sauce packet, katsuoboshi, on top of fresh rice and picked those up withkorean seaweed.
I'm sure you notice a pattern here, Kimchi goes extremely well with natto. Unfortunately I don't have any old "spoiled" kimchi, which would probably taste better with the natto.
does anyone have any good recipes where they cook natto?
oh, and good thing I'm still in my pajamas, because I have natto strings all over me
