Fresh Wasabi Stems (petioles) are offered seasonally
These heart-shaped leaves are ideal for plating and presentations of sushi, sashimi or salads. They are also tasty and nutritious micro-greens. The crunchy large heart-shaped wasabi leaves and stems are delicious and highly in demand.
The heat of wasabi is more prominent in stems than leaves but overall the heat is always greater in the prized rhizome! Wasabi stems can be used fresh in salads, sauteed with mixed greens or as an exotic garnish for bloody marys. You can keep them fresh in the refrigerators for up to 7 days.
