Natto Linguine

Updated: Sep 23, 2021

You may have seen the article I posted about natto and how to make it. Here's a delicious & easy fusion recipe (what I like to call Japitalian) that pairs natto with linguine (spaghetti, works equally well.) Do you know the health benefits of natto? - if not, a brief summary goes like this - high in protein, manganese, copper, iron, vitamin K2, magnesium, potassium, vitamin C, zinc & selenium (I think that's quite a list of healthy goodness, isn't it?). Being a fermented food full of healthy bacteria - bacillus subtilis in this case - it's also very good for your intestinal health. Moreover, it's vegetarian and vegan friendly. (This recipe does contain butter, but you can use olive oil as a substitute). If you're not inclined to make your own natto or if you're a first timer and simply want to try it out, can buy natto at Asian and Japanese food stores or on-line. Once you have your natto, the rest is really easy-peasy. I love this flavour combination and I hope you will too!

You can find the written recipe just below and click Natto Linguine for the youtube tutorial or scroll to the bottom of the page.

Happy cooking! Kurumi XXXX.
