Wasabi is often referred to as Japanese horseradish. It is actually a member of the mustard family and grows wild in cool, wet, mountainous areas. The root-like portion of the herb is light green in color. It is pungent, like horseradish or mustard, and usually ground into a paste to be served with sushi or noodle dishes.

The herb is very difficult to grow and fresh wasabi is almost impossible to find. A restaurant near me will grind it fresh (for a price!). Both powders and pastes can be purchased but much of the wasabi that is found in America is actually a combination of horseradish or mustard with food coloring. Check the package ingredients carefully.
