Quick and Easy: Wasabi Spread

Posted by in Step-by-Step Recipes

Tasty Kitchen Blog: Wasabi Spread. Guest post by Amy Johnson of She Wears Many Hats, recipe submitted by TK member Sheila Johnson of Eat2Gather.

 
The holidays are here and while I’m always full of thanks for the time to spend with family and friends (and the tasty food), by the time I’ve had my third leftover turkey or ham sandwich, I’m bored and ready for a change of pace. So when I found this recipe for Wasabi Sandwich Spread from Tasty Kitchen member, Sheila Johnson, I was intrigued. A sandwich spread to add some oomph to the leftover turkey or ham sandwich? I gave it a go and was happy that I did. It’s a simple way to change things up enough to turn an ordinary turkey sandwich into an extraordinary turkey sandwich.

And don’t be scared of the wasabi. Wasabi is your friend. Your mouth will not be on fire. Not at all. The wasabi adds a little spice but is balanced with mayo, honey and soy. A tasty combination that will leave you wishing you’d roasted another turkey. And it’s simple, too. So simple I almost didn’t post it, but then decided it was too good not to mention.

All you’ll need is mayo, wasabi paste (it comes in a cute little tube for only a few dollars), soy sauce and honey. This recipe makes a bunch and can be stored in the fridge to last through the whole holiday season. You can find the full recipe here.

In a small bowl combine all ingredients.

Mix together until smooth.

It certainly makes a plain sandwich come alive. We tried it on one of our favorite sandwich combos. It was a total success! Here’s how I used it.

Start with some roasted turkey. We also like using avocado and purple onion, sliced thinly on our favorite sandwich bread, toasted.

Begin building your sandwich with the wasabi spread going on first. Make sure you don’t skimp on the spread. You won’t need mustard or any other condiment with this spread.

Next add the turkey, the avocado, purple onion, and salt and pepper of course.

Then top it off with another layer of wasabi spread.

You’re looking at a not-so-run-of-the-mill leftover turkey sandwich, folks.

Try it. I think you’ll like it.

And thanks to Sheila Johnson, I’m looking forward to those leftovers. Wishing you the best this holiday season! Hope your kitchen is full of much love and tasty grub! (Speaking of tasty grub, check out Sheila’s blog, Eat2Gather. It’s filled with all kinds of yumminess.)

This looks good. A small locally owned grocery store here carries wasabi cheddar. This looks like a yummy alternative for a sandwich, using just regular cheese, but with a wasabi spread. I’ll definitely have to try it!

I love Wasabi anything. I just bought a can of wasabi powder at Wal-Mart. I’m going to try and mix the power with the mayo.

Sara Bowyer on 11.27.2010

made this this year…my whole family loved it!!!!

sandra freiley on 11.25.2010

this will be perfect for my mother in law!! she loves wasabi! my preference leans toward a chipotle spread – yummm.

Barbara Phelps on 11.25.2010

I make this just with the wasabi and mayo and use to dip fish in, spread on sandwiches or wraps, and to dip french fries in when I run out of tarter….YUM!

Manny on 11.25.2010

I actually just made this, and it honestly wasn’t a very big hit.. the wasabi was POWERFUL as a flavor! I’m a huge sushi fan, this isn’t my first wasabi rodeo.. it was just too much. I would say big wasabi fans only, you have to really like that flavor.

This is a fantastic way to kick up a turkey sandwich. I love the heat of wasabi – straight through the nose and no burning effects. This will definitely be made at my house.

Lacey B on 11.24.2010

That looks great! I always get sick of turkey leftovers after a couple of days. This will be perfect!

Sarah on 11.24.2010

Definitely going to be making this spread! Wasabi is a staple in our house – but I have all this mayo I bought for something else (we don’t eat mayo generally). It’s perfect!
