So, my only experience with wasabi in life has been nudging the little knobs of it next to my sushi plate, thinking if I should eat it or not. Never used it in a recipe, never saw it in any food (other than sushi..).
As a first ever recipe experience with wasabi, I decided to make something simple: a spread! Seriously, this cannot get any simpler. The only thing that takes time, maybe, is boiling the beans.
I loved eating and serving it with corn chips but you can eat it with different things, like breadsticks, crusty bread, other kinds of chips. The sky is the limit (or the grocery store).
So, if you have a fun night with friends, say rewatching old episodes of Game of Thrones (when it was an amazing TV show), you can think of this spread to accompany your chips and your fun! Enjoy!
3.5 dl (or 1 1/2 cups or 200 gr) frozen or fresh edamame beans, cooked and drained
3 tbsp white miso paste*
1.5 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp tamari soy sauce
2 tsp wasabi paste
room temperature water to adjust the texture
* Make sure you get gluten free miso paste if you have this dietary choice / restriction.
1. Put all the ingredients in a food processor and process the mixture while adding just a little water gradually, until you get the texture you wish. Serve with chips, crackers or breadsticks. Enjoy with friends!
