Baked Shiitake with Natto (Fermented Soybeans)
Keep your "vascular age" forever young! If you are concerned about the pungency of fresh onion, soak it in water for a while and squeeze the moisture out thoroughly to make it milder. Rehydrate dried Shiitake with cold water to avoid any off-tastes and increase its sweetness and flavor. Recipe provided by: Hattori Nutrition College
Hikiwari (Ground) Natto
Rehydrate the Shiitake and roast briefly over a barbecue net grill before cutting into thin slices.
Mix 1. with the finely sliced onion, soy sauce, mustard paste, and Natto.
Serve on a plate, topped with bonito flakes to taste!
