I’ve gotta little secret to share about these biscuits.

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.

    1. 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!

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

    1. 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!

    1. 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!
