Really Simple! Quick and Easy Natto Okonomiyaki

I made this extremely simple okonomiyaki for one with hardened natto that I forgot in the fridge. Its great as a midday meal or late night snack!

Ingredients: 1 person

Cabbage (roughly chopped)
about 100g
Natto (fermented soy beans)
1 pack
2 tablespoons
Bonito flakes
Tempura crumbs
Tonkatsu sauce (Japanese style Worcestershire sauce or steak sauce)


1. Put eggs, flour, natto and its accompanying dressing/mustard packet contents in a bowl. Don't mix it yet.
2. While heating a pan, add finely chopped cabbage to the bowl, and mix it up into a ball.
3. Pour the mixture into the heated pan, and top with bonito flakes and tempura crumbs to taste.
4. Flip over, press down with a spatula to shape, and cook on both sides.
5. After cooking, top with as much Japanese-style Worcestershire sauce, mayonnaise, and aonori as you like, and enjoy.

Story Behind this Recipe

My family loves natto and goes through it like there's no tomorrow... Occasionally, a package of forgotten natto makes an appearance from the back of the fridge, This is what I always make during times like these.
