Okra and natto soy sauce

A regular dish that is irresistible for fermentation lovers. This is a recipe that I came up with when I had a little extra koji. Adding raw Jiuqu gives it a natural sweetness and mellow flavor. If you want to make it sweeter, you can try increasing the amount of Jiuqu.

Ingredients (for 2 people)

・ Okra: 5

・ Natto: 1/2 pack (about 20g)

・ Raw Jiuqu: 30g

・ Soy sauce: 150 ml

How to make

1. For okra, rub salt (outside the amount) to remove fine downy hair, wash with water, and cut into pieces about 5 mm wide.

2. Put 1 and natto and raw jiuqu in a bowl and mix them roughly.

3. Put 2 in a storage bottle, pour soy sauce and store in the refrigerator.


・ Because the storage bottle is filled with soy sauce, choose a size that fits the ingredients.
・ If you mix it about once a day, the raw Jiuqu will become familiar and delicious after a week.
・ If you want to eat immediately, you can use raw Jiuqu, and if you want to eat it after leaving it for about a week, you can use dried Jiuqu.


It goes well with simple dishes such as cold tofu condiments, rice ball ingredients, and steamed vegetable batter. Please, try it.
