Elementary School Lunch: 06/10 - natto and hijiki seaweed

Food, JapanKristina PinoComment

We finally enjoyed the first natto (fermented soy beans) of the new school year today. As usual, we got it in a little cup with a packet of soy sauce and some spicy mustard to mix in. Besides that, we had some meat and potatoes, salad, and rice.

The bowl of meat and potatoes was mixed with hijiki seaweed, and it also had bits of carrot, onion, and edamame. The salad was just cabbage, carrot, and spinach seasoned in the kitchen and sprinkled with sesame seeds, which suits me perfectly fine despite the small portion today.

If you're curious, here's a close-up of the natto, in all its slimy glory.
