Okara & Natto Faux Hamburger

Okara & Natto Faux Hamburger

A cooked item that's kind of like a vegetarian hamburger. It's good for your skin as well as your tummy.

Ingredients: 2-3 servings

Fresh okara
150 g
Natto
1 pack
Japanese leek (finely chopped)
1 tablespoon
Dried hijiki seaweed
a pinch
Katakuriko
1 1/2 tablespoons
Salt
a pinch
☆ ingredients
Soy sauce
1 1/2 tablespoons
Mirin
1 tablespoon
Sake
1 tablespoon

Steps

1. If the okara is too moist, either microwave it or lightly cook it in a frying pan.
2. Combine the okara and natto in a bowl. If the smell concerns you, place the natto in a strainer and rinse with water.
3. Mix in the dried seaweed as-is without rehydrating. Add the Japanese leek, katakuriko, and salt. Mix well.
4. If it's too difficult to mix, dilute with a small amount of soy milk or water.
5. Form into an oval shape. Cook in an oiled frying pan until the surface is crispy.
6. Reduce to low heat, add the combined sauce ingredients and mix together and serve.
