About Wasabi Paste Dec 21, 2017

    Wasabi paste is a ready to use mixture of dried horseradish, mustard, food coloring and water. This is typically not a "pure" real wasabi product but it is commonly used as a condiment with sushi.

    Wasabi is generally sold either as a stem, which must be very finely grated before use, as dried powder in large quantities, or as a ready-to-use paste in tubes similar to travel toothpaste tubes. Because it grows mostly submerged, it is a common misconception to refer to the part used for wasabi as a root or sometimes even a rhizome: it is in fact the stem of the plant, with the characteristic leaf scar where old leaves fell off or were collected.

   In some high-end restaurants, the paste is prepared when the customer orders, and is made using a grater to grate the stem; once the paste is prepared, it loses flavor in 15 minutes if left uncovered. In sushipreparation, sushi chefs usually put the wasabi between the fish and the rice because covering wasabi until served preserves its flavor.

   Fresh wasabi leaves can be eaten, having the spicy flavor of wasabi stems.

   Legumes (peanuts, soybeans, or peas) may be roasted or fried, then coated with wasabi powder mixed with sugar, salt, or oil and eaten as a crunchy snack.
