2 cups dried whole peas
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 teaspoons wasabi powder
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
Soak the peas in water to cover overnight.
Preheat the oven to 200°. Drain the peas, then cook them according to instructions on the package. Mix the olive oil with the cooked peas until well coated.
Oil a baking sheet and spread the peas evenly across it. Place in the oven and bake for 5 hours, until the peas appear dry and are crisp when bitten into.
Combine the wasabi powder, tahini, rice vinegar and mustard in a mixing bowl.
Combine the wasabi mixture with the hot peas making sure that all the peas are evenly coated.
Using a rubber spatula, spread the peas on the baking sheet, separating as many as you can. Increase the oven temperature to 250°. Bake the peas for 10 to 15 minutes, until the coating is dry.
