Gluten-Free Wasabi Parsley Biscuits

by Amie on January 2, 2012

I’ve gotta little secret to share.

I love wasabi.

You know that bright green lookin’ wasabi that you enjoy with your sushi?

You know exactly what I’m talking about.

For quite some time, I’ve been  wanting to create a masterpiece with my beloved wasabi.  And I just did.  Granted, they aren’t exactly like the wasabi you get fresh from the sushi restaurant, but they come pretty darn close.

The biscuits are traditional and very flaky and buttery, while the wasabi is hot n’ smooth.

What else could you ask for?

Okay well, maybe you’d prefer some chocolate or cheese in your biscuit.

But not I.

If you want, you could surely dip these biscuits into your favorite gravy, but I chose to keep ‘em plain and simple this time.  For no other reason than I had no gravy.

I know. I know.

Who am I not to have gravy with biscuits, right?

Well, this wasabi pretty much takes over and doesn’t even make you miss the ol’ gravy.

I happen to think these biscuits heal just about anything.  But then, I think that about anything that comes out of my oven nice n’ golden brown.

So, gravy or not…give these babies a whirl.

You’ve never had a biscuit quite like this guy.

He’s a hottie.

Yum! I love wasabi and I love savory bread – this is right up my alley! I have been trying to perfect a wasabi toasted chickpea and your post just reminded to try another batch!


Amie January 2, 2012 at 3:52 pm

Thank you, Alyssa; enjoy! The wasabi is fabulous in this recipe. Have a great afternoon!


Ashley January 2, 2012 at 12:57 pm

Wasabi biscuits! How creative. I’ve never thought to put wasabi in a biscuit, and I actually have wasabi powder in my pantry that I’ve only used once. Thanks for the great idea. :)


Amie January 2, 2012 at 3:53 pm

Thank you, Ashley; you are so kind. So happy to hear from you. Happy New Year and thank you again!


Kim January 2, 2012 at 3:22 pm

These look delicious, and take me back to my college days where I had a good friend who just LOVED biscuits and gravy {especially after a night out of partying!} So glad you stopped by my blog to say hi! Looking forward to more of your gluten-free recipes and posts in the New Year! Happy 2012!


Amie January 3, 2012 at 4:02 pm

Thank you Alysa; great to hear from you! Happy New Year; I am such a huge fan of your work and it’s such a pleasure to hear from you! xoxo


Rachel @ The Crispy Cook January 4, 2012 at 8:54 am

Great partnership of flavors in this biscuit. I’d eat one right now. Or two….


Amie January 4, 2012 at 11:43 am

Thank you, Rachel; enjoy! Hope you try these spicy yet savory biscuits…they’re delish. Thank you for your comment; so happy to hear from you. Enjoy your morning!


charissa (zest bakery) January 4, 2012 at 10:30 am

How unique! How is the spice level of the wasabi? Or is it mostly just flavor? I’m so intrigued!


Amie January 4, 2012 at 11:44 am

Thank you Charissa; they’re quite unique and fun to eat. They’re pretty good with some Earth Balance butter on top, too. The spice level isn’t too hot, which is nice but you can always add more wasabi if you’d like to add another kick to it! Have a great day and thank you so much for your comment!


charissa (zest bakery) January 4, 2012 at 10:31 am

Oh, and congrats on being featured in the bing blog roundup!


Amie January 4, 2012 at 11:59 am

Thank you so much; where did you happen to see this? I wasn’t able to view this; would you mind sharing the link please? Thanks Charissa!


Jenn January 4, 2012 at 11:24 am

Very interesting! I would never have thought to be wasabi into biscuits before!


Amie January 4, 2012 at 11:41 am

Thanks so much, Jenn; great to hear from you, as always! Hope your New Year is off to a great start. Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Amie January 4, 2012 at 3:22 pm

Thanks, Caneel; Happy New Year! So true; no gravy needed when you’ve got great fresh flavor using healthy ingredients. Hope you enjoy these biscuits. Have a lovely afternoon! xoxo You’re gluten-free recipes always amaze me and I’m so happy and honored to hear from you!

You are one brave woman! I am a wasabi chicken. But I do know people who love the stuff and I bet they’d love these biscuits. Cool!

Thank you, Lisa; so great to hear from you! Happy New Year. I am a brave woman and love my wasabi. Hope you enjoy this recipe; have a great day!


Jonathan January 5, 2012 at 1:37 am

Your recipe sounds wonderful! See, I, too, am a lover of wasabi. And for those who avoid the sinus-clearing, tear-inducing, fiery ingredient, that just leaves more for us. :)


Amie January 5, 2012 at 9:39 am

Thank you Jonathan; great to hear from you! Happy New Year; I just found your blog and I love it. What a great resource and I can’t wait to see your 2012 posts. Enjoy these wasabi biscuits and have a great day. Thank you again for your comment!
