Natto -- Some serving suggestions

Eric Eto | Aug 4, 2004 02:31 AM

I was looking through Japion, a Japanese language free weekly paper here in NYC, and it had a little sidebar on a variety of ways people eat their natto. I really enjoy natto, by the way. Here are some ingredients to mix with natto to enhance your eating pleasure.

1. Mayonnaise
2. Minced tsukemono
3. Ketchup
4. Salt
5. Umeboshi/ground sesame
6. Wasabi/dashi soy
7. Chopped tomato
8. Grated ginger
9. Chili oil
10. Chinese hot sauce/sesame oil
11. grated daikon/ponzu
12. French dressing
13. Shiso dressing
14. Dashi soy (men-tsuyu dipping sauce)
15. Peanut butter

Other suggestion include adding natto to these common preparations:

1. Mixed into miso soup
2. Mixed into Japanese style omelettes (slightly sweetened)
3. Natto fried rice

I've tried a few of these methods, but I'm curious about some of the more odd suggestions. But I'm willing to give it a try. You?
