Sushi Workshop: How to Make Wasabi Paste


  • 4 teaspoons wasabi powder
  • 2½ teaspoons water

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Put wasabi powder in a small bowl.
    Add a teaspoon of water to the wasabi powder and mix together using a chopstick to make a thick paste.
    Continue adding very small amounts of water until you reach the desired consistency.
  2. Turn the bowl upside down while you prepare the sushi.
    The wasabi paste will stick to the bottom of the bowl while upside down.
    This will preserve the flavour of the wasabi until it is ready to be used.


PREP TIME: 5 minutes

MariJoin Mari Toyoda, the creator of Wafu®, and learn first hand how to make your own sushi at home.

The seeds of the Wafu® story were planted when Mari Toyoda, a trained Japanese chef, immigrated to Montreal, Canada.

Mari grew up working in her parent’s Tokyo restaurant. In Montreal, she started a sushi business and a sushi workshop on the side. And it was here that Wafu® truly got started.

To serve with her sushi, Mari wanted a sesame dressing like the ones that she had grown up eating. Something smooth… creamy… tasty. Something authentically Japanese.

In her own kitchen, she created what was to become the first Wafu product: a versatile salad dressing with no colours, no artificial flavours, no trans fats… had almost no cholesterol or saturated fats… and was 100% delicious.

Today, Wafu® continues to bring the authentic flavours of Japan from the east to the west, so everyone can enjoy them.
