Wasabi is a type of spice made from the ground root of the Japanese horseradish (Wasabi japonica) plant. It has an intense, hot flavor that stimulates the tongue and nasal passages. Unlike chili peppers, however, wasabi’s burning sensation is short-lived and washes away easily when followed with food or drink.
Wasabi is usually made into a paste and paired with sushi or sashimi, but it can also be made into a powder and tossed with dried legumes such as peanuts, soybeans or peas for a crunchy snack.
Green peas grow in pods on the Pisum sativum plant, native to central Asia and the Middle East. Recognized as one of the first food crops grown by humans, peas grow in almost every climate zone today and are consumed fresh and dried around the world. Peas are considered a vegetable, but they are technically legumes. They’re a good source of fiber, vitamin C and other phytonutrients.
