Natto | Fermented soybeans

Fermented soybeans may not sound so delicious, but in Japan it is a common Japanese food called natto. For those who have not seen or tried natto, it may be quite strange to say the least. Natto is brown, and has a strong scent and slimy texture, not to mention its stringiness. Its packaging is most commonly a white polystyrene container and comes with a small soy sauce and Japanese mustard packet. The two packets are emptied into the natto then you would mix the natto with the sauces to achieve a stringy web-like texture and look. Most Japanese eat natto over rice and is common to eat for breakfast. It is considered very healthy, rich in amino acids.
