Japanese food: Natto

It looks nasty and smells bad BUT it tastes good and it’s healthy. Natto is made of fermented soybeans, being the fermentation process the reason of its cheese-like smell and the sticky texture. It has a lot of protein and vitamins K and C. I have to say it’s not my favourite food, but I like eating it from time to time with rice. All in all, a curious food.
