If I said wasabi, quick, what’s your first thought? No doubt, sushi right?

That’s probably what comes to mind for most people, because sushi is to wasabi as yin is to yang, but surprisingly, this popular horseradish is actually friends with many types of food, from potatoes to even cupcakes. Yes, wasabi flavored cupcakes, pretty wild right?

But for this recipe, we’re going to match one Japanese favorite with another, introducing Parmesan Wasabi Edamame.

Warning: These things are highly prone to addiction; side effects include becoming an Edamame eating monster after the first bite.


But seriously, it’s no joke that wasabi is one feisty plant, with the taste of hot mustard and the sassy attitude of a chili pepper. Add in the fact that this green stuff gives off vapors that make your nose go on fire, wasabi is sure to excite any meal. Now mix that excitement in with some Edamame, and you’ll know you’re in for an explosive treat.  Ready for some fun?
