"A spicy choice for snack food when you need to crunch on something. Great to put out at a party or have next to you at your computer. If you really love wasabi, you may wish to double or triple the coating mixture."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

I don't understand the poor reviews on this snack... maybe the reviewers were expecting a side dish of soft, cooked peas?? If so, this is NOT a side dish type pea... the peas are cooked until completely dehydrated (thus they are hard and crunchy) and meant to be eaten alone as a snack (they also make great additions to salads).
The prep and cooking is a little long, but these are a great snack, and you can make a bunch and freeze some for later. You also CANNOT just put wasabi on peas and dehydrate them and get the same thing... you have to add in other ingredients to get a "dough" that will stick to the peas. I skipped the mirepoix part, but followed the rest of the recipe and I thought these were great. Next time I will add a little more wasabi, as I like my wasabi peas very hot.
I believe this is a classic case of over-complicating a simple idea. Wasabi Peas are not a complex creation: Wasabi + Peas + Roasting/Dehydrating = Yum.
Never overcomplicate when the simpler idea is better.
This was the most disappointing waste of time and resources - tastes nothing like they should - I followed the recipe to the most minute detail. Still want to try to make these but they ended up dry, hard, and tasteless.
I wonder if the chef made an error in this recipe. I agree with the previous reviewer. This recipe was a great big disappointment and a waste of a lot of time. I followed the instructions closely and got a pile of tasteless peas.
This recipe is absolutly amazing the peas are delicious & have just the right amount of spice. I highly recommend that you try this amazing snack. I highly recommend that the previous reviewers also try this incredible snack since it's clear they have never made these Wasabi Green Peas before but I know they'll love them when they do.
I love wasabi peas, but was not crazy about the recipe. It didnt seem worth the effort when the store bought ones taste much better. But it is kind of cool to be able to make them for yourself.
I made it without the MIREPOIX which I looked up how to make. (It is basically 50% onion and 25 % each of carrot and celery. It is used more in different types of soup stocks as a base.) ....Everything else worked great together. I LOVE the recipe without the Mirepoix mixture. THANKS for sharing it with us!!
This is an excellent and versatile recipe! Very tasty.
