Refreshing Ramps and Natto Shira-ae

Refreshing Ramps and Natto Shira-ae

This is my original recipe. It's really simple and very refreshing!
To be honest, it's so good that I want to keep it a secret.
Even kids will enjoy eating this shira-ae.

Ingredients: 4 servings

Ramps (or alpine leek)
3 bunches (as needed)
Tofu (I use silken)
1 block
Natto (I use crushed natto)
1 pack
Ponzu
to taste
Bonito flakes / white sesame seeds
to taste

Steps

1. Prepare the ramps. For details, see Recipe ID: 1116286.
2. Boil the prepared ramps in salt water for 1-2 minutes.
3. Drain them in a sieve, and quickly rinse them under running water. (Don't soak them, just rinse.)
4. Squeeze out the water, and roughly cut into 2 cm pieces.
5. Put the drained tofu, natto, ramps, bonito flakes, sesame seeds and ponzu in a bowl, and mix roughly with a spoon to finish.

Story Behind this Recipe

I had lots of ramps, so I came up with a no-fail, refreshing dish.
