Ingredients (Serves 2)

  • 90 g natto
  • 2 slices bacon
  • 30 g processed cheese
  • 1/2 Japanese leek (cut into thin rounds)
  • [A]

    • 2 tbsp mirin
    • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 2 bowls cooked rice (hot) (400 g)
  • Japanese mustard, as needed

Directions

1

Chop up the processed cheese so it's about the same size as the natto beans.

2

Cut the bacon into 1 cm strips. Put in a frying pan and place over high heat. When the fat starts to melt, add the natto and half of the leek rounds.

3

Mix the natto and leek rounds together while adding [A] in the order in which the ingredients are listed. Add the cheese and briefly stir-fry.

4

Put the rice in individual bowls and top with the natto mixture. Garnish with the remaining leek rounds and Japanese mustard, diluted with a few drops of water.
