About This Recipe
- Japanese natto recipe (fermented soybeans)
- Chilled Udon Noodles
- Easy and quick recipe
Here are the ingredients(amounts are in the recipe card below).
- 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 boiling time, making it 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. And 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.
Let me walk you through how to make it. You can also watch this video.
