Mamenoka butter

Mamenoka butter

cold dish, 8-10 servings

The Japanese eat natto with white rice, so this recipe is a cultural challenge for westerners to eat natto with bread.


  • 100g of butter
  • 40g of mamenoka
  • 8g of shallots (instead of green onion) A pinch of wasabi powder
  • A pinch of chives
  • 1 tsp of konbucha (powdered kelp tea) 2g of fleur de sel (for finishing)
  • A pinch of salt (for mixing)
  • French baguette bread

How to make

  1. Bring the butter to room temperature
  2. Finely chop the chives and shallots
  3. Mix the above ingredients thoroughly with the salt, wasabi powder, mamenoka and konbucha.
  4. Cover the mix in plastic film and leave to chill in the fridge for 2 hours or more.
  5. Cut the chilled mix to the size of your choice and add the fleur de sel. Enjoy!

* Take care not to over-salt the butter base!
* Don’t overtoast the French bread either
