Wasabi Flavored White Sauce with Lots of Mushrooms


How do you use wasabi? You can enjoy wasabi more by mixing it with a variety of foods.

Wasabi and basil go together perfectly. Just mix with mayonnaise and dress with tomatoes, avocado, and soft boiled chicken for a simple and delicious salad.


Why is Wasabi Spicy?

The spicy taste of wasabi is due to an ingredient called allyl isothiocyanate. Here is a summary of why it is spicy and how to reduce the spiciness.

Same Spicy Taste Component

The spicy taste component of both wasabi and horseradish is allyl isothiocyanate. In fact, powdered wasabi is made from horseradish. And since horseradish is more spicy in taste, many products are mixed with Japanese Wasabi to create a spicy taste.

In other words, wasabi is perfect for Western cuisine. Especially when added to white sauce and poured over hamburger steaks or meatballs, it eases the greasiness and makes them very easy to eat.

Wasabi Tubes and Weights

Most of the time when you use wasabi, you use wasabi in a tube. However, putting the wasabi from the tube to a tablespoon and using a scale can be time-consuming.

2cm Wasabi Tube = 1g

I actually weighed the wasabi tube and found that 2 cm of wasabi tube is about 1 g. That is, 10 cm of wasabi tube is about 1 teaspoon. That is, about 1 teaspoon for 10 cm.

Surprisingly large, don’t you think? Still, 10 cm is the same as drawing a circle with a diameter of about 3 cm. If you wrap it around a circle or squeeze it out all at once, it will weigh only about 5 grams. Please try to get a feel for it by weighing it once.
