From wasabi guacamole to spicy cocoa cupcakes, there isn't much this hot little root can't improve
Sinus cleanser, eye-waterer and head-blower-offer: these are the things wasabi is generally known for. But whether you're using wasabi powder or wasabi paste, there's a whole load of fun you could be having with the fiery green stuff. Come on, let's have a gander …
It's worth digging out the mandoline for this zingy, refreshing salad. Serve alongside rich meats such as duck and pork belly, or take it along to a sunny picnic in the park.
That's lunch sorted then.
Some like it hot.
Is this a strange perversion of an old-school favourite or a moment of genius? We'll let you decide.
Who knew petits pois could be so naughty?
And if this dip works, think of how many others you can make …

One way to spice up a Sunday roast.
Worth sneaking into the cinema.
Make extra chickpeas and eat them on their own as a pre-dinner nibble. Just try to remember to save some for the soup!
Much easier than sushi and looks just as good – very welcome in a lunchbox!
Tofu gets a bad rep but roasted until it's brown and crispy, and then served with this tasty dipping sauce? Well, then it's totally yummy.
Once you've tried wasabi mayo, you'll be using it in everything: egg sarnies, potato salads, homemade coleslaw. Trust us, nothing is safe.
Goes very well with prawn cocktail – mix them together in a bowl.
Another lunchbox wonder or get it out at a barbecue. Wasabi will be making an appearance everyday of the week at this rate.
