Refreshing! Slippery! Umeboshi-Natto Soba Noodles

An easy recipe using readymade mentsuyu noodle sauce concentrate.
The chopped natto and the soba noodles mix together well, and the umeboshi makes it refreshing.

Ingredients: 1 serving

Soba noodles (dried)
150 g
Natto (fermented soy beans)
1 pack
Umeboshi paste
2 teaspoons
Mentsuyu, diluted with water
100 ml
Green onions or scallions
To taste


1. Chop up the green onions. Use chopped natto or chop up whole natto by putting it on a piece of aluminum foil and chopping up roughly.
2. Cool the noodles following package instructions. Put the mentsuyu sauce, umeboshi paste and natto in a bowl and mix together well while not letting it foam up.
3. Drain the noodles and cool in cold water, and drain well again. Add to the mixture from Step 2 and mix well. When everything has been well combined, mix from the bottom so that the natto comes up to the top. Add the green onions and other toppings and serve.
4. I tried adding a boiled egg. Mix them in or enjoy on the side -- however you prefer!
