  • Easy and quick recipe

📋 Ingredients

Here are the ingredients(amounts are in the recipe card below).

Ingredients for Chilled Natto Udon Noodle Bowl
  • Udon noodles: Udon is a thick and chewy noodle made from flour. I use frozen udon noodles in this recipe. Frozen ones may only need one minute of boiling time, making them quick and easy to use.
  • Natto: Use the attached sauce and karashi (Japanese mustard) as well.
  • Eggs: We are gonna make soft-boiled eggs.
  • Mentsuyu (noodle soup): I make it from scratch, which is super easy in this recipe, but you can also buy it at a store. Mentsuyu is made from dashi, which usually contains fish, so if you are vegan/vegetarian, you can substitute it with vegan dashi.
  • Toppings: Scallions and shredded nori.

    I enjoyed this recipe! But there is a small mistake in the instructions. 10 minutes for the eggs will result in hard boiled eggs, not soft boiled.

    1. Hi Philip! Thank you for trying my favorite natto noodle recipe! I apologize for not clarifying to turn off the heat in the instructions, but I have added that now. If you turn off the heat and place the eggs in boiled water, letting them sit, they will turn out as soft-boiled eggs. I hope you have the opportunity to try it again!
