Natto and kimchi over fresh tofu

Natto marinated in kimchi over fresh tofu

This is a really simple way of preparing natto.  The combination of natto and kimchi make for a delicious and extremely healthy snack or side dish.  Kimchi is a traditional Korean dish and made up of several kinds of fermented vegetables.  It is a good source of fiber and vitamin C and is high in vitamins A, B1, B2, calcium, iron, and several lactic acid bacteria.  It was only a matter of time before natto and kimchi combined forces to create an uber nutritious and delisious dish.

Where can I find kimchi?  You can find kimchi at most asian super markets and many larger super markets like Ralphs.  However, there are several different kinds of kimchi and all are not made equal.  I recommend buying it from a Korean super market if you have the choice.


  1. 1/2 cup Kimchi
  2. 1 Packet of natto


  1. Cut up the kimchi into small bits and place on a plate.
  2. Mix in the natto.
  3. After mixing it, saran wrap it and stick it in the fridge for 6-8 hours.  You can stick it over night or stick it in in the morning and have it later in the day.
  4. After the natto has had the chance to soak up the kimchi flavor, its ready to eat.  Eat if over fresh rice or tofu or whatever you desire.

This is one of my favorite natto side dishes!  Definitely try it out and let me know what you think!

    I just had kimchi and natto sprinkled with a little black pepper for dinner. Simple, nutritious and delicious!
    i remember when I first tried natto- a good 2~3 years ago and Slimy, mushy, eck!
    But now I’ve come to love it- it’s indeed an acquired taste.

    Great blog you have here!
