Ingredients

2 cups dried whole peas
2 tablespoons olive oil

Wasabi Coating
4 teaspoons wasabi powder
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

Instructions

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.

I tried to make these yesterday. The peas were hard and looked like raisins. Yuck.  I used the coating to coat some peanuts and it wasn't very spicy. All in all very disappointing.

Not anything like what I'm used to. Not spicy and not particularly good.

wish I'd read the two comments first - I just wasted hours and lots of propane for nothing these are no where near a wasabi pea one would expect
