Wasabi Green Peas

"A spicy choice for snack food when you need to crunch on something. Great to put out at a party or have next to you at your computer. If you really love wasabi, you may wish to double or triple the coating mixture."

  1. Soak the dried peas overnight, then rinse and drain. Place peas in a large pot with enough water to cover by a couple of inches. Add the Mirepoix, and bring to a boil. Cook until tender, about 1 hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C). Coat a large cookie sheet with olive oil. It helps to use a cookie sheet with sides to keep them from rolling off.
  3. Drain the peas, and transfer to the cookie sheet. Roll them around in the oil by tilting the pan, or stir with your hand. Bake for 4 to 8 hours in the preheated oven, stirring every 30 minutes or so, until peas are dry. Remove from oven, and season with salt, onion salt, and garlic powder.
  4. While the peas are roasting, mix together the wasabi powder, tahini, rice vinegar, and Dijon mustard in a large bowl. When the peas are ready, pour them into the bowl, and stir to coat with the wasabi mixture. Pour them back onto the cookie sheet in a single layer, and return to the oven.
  5. Bake for another 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the aroma becomes very strong, and the coating is dry.

I don't understand the poor reviews on this snack... maybe the reviewers were expecting a side dish of soft, cooked peas?? If so, this is NOT a side dish type pea... the peas are cooked until co...

I believe this is a classic case of over-complicating a simple idea. Wasabi Peas are not a complex creation: Wasabi + Peas + Roasting/Dehydrating = Yum. Never overcomplicate when the simpler i...

I made it without the MIREPOIX which I looked up how to make. (It is basically 50% onion and 25 % each of carrot and celery. It is used more in different types of soup stocks as a base.) ....Eve...

I love wasabi peas, but was not crazy about the recipe. It didnt seem worth the effort when the store bought ones taste much better. But it is kind of cool to be able to make them for yourself...

This is an excellent and versatile recipe! Very tasty.

I made this a couple of weeks ago as written minus the Mirepoix. They turned out fine for me except for a couple of things. I did think they needed more wasabi which is an easy fix but the mai...
