Avocado with Wasabi & Soy – The Easiest Wasabi Recipe


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.

The Sushi Boom

Do you like sushi? Sushi is all the rage in Finland. Sushi buffets are everywhere, and packaged sushi is sold in supermarkets. Various manufacturers have come up with interesting sushi recipes. It is thanks to sushi that wasabi became widely known.

By the way, Japanese people rarely make sushi by hand. Nevertheless, it is sometimes requested at home parties. Of course, I make my own sushi rice and make my own sushi.

Avocado Sushi

Most restaurants in Finland offer vegetarian options. The sushi buffet is no exception. The main vegan sushi are inari, seaweed salad rolls, and avocado sushi.

In other words, the combination of avocado and soy sauce is quite acceptable even abroad. And wasabi, of course. I went out of my way to make this recipe to tell you that even if you don’t have rice, avocado, soy sauce, and wasabi alone is delicious.

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.
