Making Something Out Of Nothing ~ "Cheeze-E" Wasabi Brown Rice & A Word About Wasabi
Why do I like Wasabi? Well, let me tell you! I enjoy powerful flavors as you may already know! With Wasabi I have a little bit of a reminiscent thing going on, too! About a year or two before my Grandmother passed away I introduced her to Wasabi Peas. She didn't think she would like them. She thought they would be TOO HOT but she had one and kept going back time and time again and thereafter bought Wasabi Peas to snack on from time to time.
It's technically a root/plant much like Horseradish - altho - Horseradish IS a different plant.
It stimulates the nasal passages and clears the senses. I think it's a nice way to open up and awake your nose every once and a while - just by eating a bit of it!
Some people say that Wasabi is good for slowing down spoilage and bacteria growth. Wasabi also has Anti-Inflammatory Effects as well as Anti-Cancer Properties. Just a few fun findings on Wasabi.
