Wave wasa-BYE to boring salads and sandwiches! Wasabi microgreens possess that same horseradish spiciness wasabi root is known for, while always being a powerhouse of nutrients! Micro Wasabi is very small in size, averaging 5-7 centimeters in height, and has thin, pale, light green stems that bear 2-3 bright green, tender, heart-shaped leaves. The leaves are smooth, pliable, and slightly rounded with even edges. Micro Wasabi greens are crisp, succulent, and semi-chewy, and boast an up-front mild, sweet green flavor that quickly bursts into distinct spicy notes with a sharp peppery flavor. This heat does not linger on the palate and mellows quickly, similar to the flavor of horseradish.
Micro Wasabi contains vitamins A, B, C, and K, manganese, fiber, calcium, and beta-carotene.
Micro Wasabi greens are best suited for raw applications as their fresh flavor, and delicate greens cannot withstand high heat. They are most commonly used in sushi and sashimi dishes, sprinkled on top of miso or noodle soups, and used in many other Asian dishes. Micro Wasabi can also be used in green salads, sandwiches, spring rolls, or served with seafood such as salmon, crab, shrimp, and lobster. Micro Wasabi pairs well with pear, apple, tuna, shrimp, salmon, crab, ham, smoked meats, ginger, sesame, soy, rice wine vinegar, mirin, miso, scallion, lemon, chili peppers, and cream.
