Wasabi peas are crunchy, spicy, and salty with a hint of sweet. One thing our wholesale wasabi peas are not – your boring childhood peas!
They are typically made by frying or roasting shelled peas, then coating them with dried wasabi powder.
Let’s take a look at this tasty, crunchy snack.
The peas – well, we all know what those are. Green peas are a part of our babyhood and growing up, as they seem to sneak into everyone’s diet sooner or later. Quite a few of us were forced to eat peas for dinner as kids, right? Not to mention the ubiquitous green pea baby foods. Sure, they were healthy - but can anyone say they were not boring?
We have taken those exact non-exciting peas to a whole new level! Our wholesale wasabi peas are adventurous, bold, and thrilling. They offer a real flavor kick that will surely open your eyes and taste buds.
Now, what about wasabi? How spicy and hot is it?
Wasabi, pretty much like horseradish, delivers the type of heat that hits the nose, rather than the mouth. Also, its spiciness is brief and easy to remedy, unlike the heat of chili peppers, and will calm down in less than a minute. Just remember to have a glass of water handy, just in case.
The amazing thing about wasabi peas, besides their tastiness, is that you are eating a vegetable. Wasabi peas also contain nutritional benefits that make them a healthier snack.
It’s not often that a processed vegetable can still retain its character without a high fat content, and that is exactly what’s also great about this kind of peas.
Having a handful or so of wasabi peas is a tasty way to boost your intake of protein and fiber, as 1 ounce gives you 6 grams of protein, 4 grams of dietary fiber, as well as iron, vitamins, and other nutrients that are good for a healthy body. And, if you eat in moderation, they won't add to your waistline; plus, you want to keep your sodium and saturated fat intake within healthy limits.
Wasabi peas are your answer for various situations, when you want a healthier yet yummy snack, you crave something salty yet a little bit sweet, morning caffeine not quite working, for an afternoon snack attack, flu season when your sinuses are stuffed, or as you’re driving or traveling for long hours and you want a pick me up.
Bulk wasabi peas are also great for parties, especially if want something spicy yet with less fat than chips.
There are many ways you can eat wasabi peas. On their own, of course, but you can also add wasabi peas to your favorite stir-fry recipe, crush them up and mix with whole-wheat breadcrumbs to make a valiant coating for grilled chicken or fish, stir some into tuna salad, pasta salad or soup to enhance the flavor and add a bit of crunch.
