Natto is a Japanese delicacy made from fermenting soybeans and has a savory and unique flavor. Once you try natto, you will be hooked. It is like eating baked beans, but with a much stickier source. Cooked in eggs, its a great way to enjoy what I consider to be the best way to serve beans. You can always make this into scrambled eggs and get more colors in your dish.

  • Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add onion and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes.

  • Combine eggs and natto in a bowl until natto is evenly distributed.

  • Heat oil in a nonstick frying pan over medium heat. Add egg mixture and cook until nearly set, 3 to 5 minutes. Add cooked spinach and onion. Flip the omelette and finish cooking until fully set, about 2 minutes more.

Cook's Note:

To cook in a microwave oven, add the onions and spinach to the egg and bean mixture and cook for 4 minutes on high in a nonstick microwaveable dish (no need to add the oil).
