I bought a four pack of natto after reading up on its health benefits. I also read that some people should cook it first because it's an acquired taste, and may take some getting used to it before you can eat it raw. And I was thinking "Oh it can't be that bad," but sure enough, I tried it raw in a sandwich, and it was awful. I couldn't take more than 2 bites.
So, does anyone have any recipes for natto that will help me get used to the taste? I don't want it to go to waste...
