Story Behind this Recipe

A coworker from Hiroshima at my old work place taught me about natto soba. I wanted to eat a version with vegetables, and without the natto sinking to the bottom of the bowl! So, I came up with my own variation. I didn't really like soba before, but I've been buying it more since learning this recipe. Of course, this is what I have for my New Year's Eve soba!
