The mighty bean!
I won’t lie.. I was afraid to try this.. the “acquired taste” comments always made me think I was going to eat something funnnnnnnkay…. I assumed this would smell like rotten durian. Potent. Skunky and strong. How amazingly surprised I was to try it and be reminded of slightly more fermented “pinto bean/refried bean”. One could also liken the texture to a tempeh feel without that kind of sour fermented taste. It blends beautifully with a high quality soy sauce on fresh rice. It almost has a sweet flavor! Don’t be afraid of this magic bean. It will heal your gut, surprise your taste buds and love you back ten times more
Give it a Try!
I was told natto is an acquired taste, and while there is some truth to this I think it's more an acquired texture and appearance! The little beans stick together in a way that we don't normally associate with something we eat, so it's a bit off putting at first. Traditionally this is eaten for breakfast in Japan, and I tried my little natto cup on a ghee fried egg the other morning for breakfast, and it was pretty good actually! This stuff is pretty pricey, so it will definitely be more of an occasional treat, but it was nice to try something new and I have to say I even enjoyed it!
