About the Recipe

If you like natto and want to try it out with other food combinations, here is a great recipe to get you started. You will need some instand "dashi" stock granules but you can buy these online. This dish is made in Japan typically using spaghetti rather than linguine but I prefer the latter as I think it soaks up a little more of the flavours from the dish - on the other hand, you can use spaghetti and the dish will still work out very well.


1/2 sheet of nori

2 spring onions

100g natto (sticky fermented soy beans)

2 tbsp soy sauce

160g linguine

a pinch of salt

20g salted butter

1 tsp japanese dashi stock granules

some cress for garnishing


fold the sheet of nori in half 3 times, then use scissors to cut the little square into matchsticks

finely chop the spring onions

chop the natto roughly on a cutting board

put the natto in a bowl and stir well, then add the spring onion and soy sauce and mix everything together

cook the linguine in a pan according to the instruction on the packet

melt the butter in a frying pan and add the linguine & dashi granules and mix together

add the natto and mix again

your natto linguine is ready to serve, garnish with the nori & cress
