Ingredients:
  • 1 tablespoon raw honey or more depending on desired sweetness
  • 1 teaspoon raw Ume Plum Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon raw miso tamari
  • 1/8-1/4 teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger or to taste
  • 1 teaspoon chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon chopped green onion (green parts only)
  • 2 cups spiralized English cucumber noodles
  • 3 tablespoons Natto
Instructions:
To make the dressing, mix the Ume Plum Vinegar, tamari, finely grated ginger, and raw honey in a small bowl with a fork until well combined and set aside. Then, using the paderno spiral slicer, spiralize an English cucumber until you get about 2 cups cucumber noodles. (You can peel the cucumber or not peel it depending on the type of presentation you want.) Toss the spiral cut cucumbers with the Ume Plum dressing and garnish with the Natto, chopped green onion and cilantro. Eat with chop sticks for fun.

 

Tips

  • If you don’t have one, you can purchase the paderno spiral slicer here to make the cucumber noodles.
  • If you don’t know what Natto is, here is a Natto article I wrote about this ancient Japanese superfood. If you don’t have access to Natto you can use organic cooked edamame instead.
  • I get my Natto delivered to my home from Meguminatto, you also might find it in selected Asian markets.
  • I get my raw Ume Plum Vinegar from Eden Foods
  • I get my raw wheat and soy free Miso Tamari from South River Miso but you could just use regular tamari.
  • You can grate the ginger with a microplane or spice grater, but if you don’t like the consistency of raw ginger you can squeeze out the juice between your fingers and discard the pulp.
