Natto Pasta


Should you be chatting with someone Japanese and the conversation turns to food, there’s one inevitable question you should always be ready for… “do you like natto?” Natto is simply fermented soy beans packed with vitamins and nutrients, but this innocent bean has a strong smell, sticky texture and a taste somewhat comparable to blue cheese. Like Marmite, you either ‘love it or hate it’!

Although natto is traditionally eaten as part of a Japanese breakfast, we’re going to show you how you can easily incorporate it into other meals with this Natto Pasta recipe. Using spaghetti, natto, a healthy smattering of seaweed and a splash of Japanese tsuyu sauce on top for good measure, this Natto Pasta recipe is a simple and delicious fusion of both Japanese and Western flavours and super healthy to boot.
