Raw Egg on Rice with Natto

Raw Egg on Rice with Natto

Usually, you mix natto and a raw egg together before topping on rice, but I was advised to mix rice with egg first before topping it with natto... Despite my skepticism, it was different!

Ingredients: 1 serving

Hot cooked white rice
1 rice bowl full
Soy sauce
1 teaspoon
Natto (fermented soy beans)
1 pack
Chopped green onion
As you like
Ground sesame seeds
To taste
Sesame oil
1 teaspoon


1. Crack an egg, whisk with soy sauce, and mix well with rice. Open a pack of natto and briskly mix in the container with the accompanying sauce.
2. Transfer the rice to a bowl, top with natto, scatter sliced scallions and ground sesame, pour sesame oil in circular motion, and it's done.
3. If you arrange this on a plate like a cafe dish, a plain egg on rice dish will look fancy.

Story Behind this Recipe

I used to mix natto and egg together before topping on rice, but when I was making egg on rice for a friend, she advised topping it with natto, and since then I've been a fan of this style! It's not much, but it's a completely different way of eating, so please try it out.
