Looking to add a spicy kick to your favorite dish? Heat is on-trend, and few ingredients offer the all-natural punch and versatility of horseradish.
As a healthy low-sodium, low fat option for flavoring food, horseradish contains high levels of vitamin C and has antibacterial properties to help your body naturally fight infection. It’s really one of the most super superfoods.
Hotter than true wasabi, horseradish is the perfect complement to a wide variety of foods, especially when it’s used to create a flavor combination. In fact, you may already be serving horseradish and not be aware, as most commercially available wasabi outside Japan is actually a mixture of horseradish, food coloring and mustard.
You can add horseradish to a variety of dishes for a kick of spicy flavor. It makes a great addition to scrambled eggs and omelets, or your deviled egg filling mixture. Already at home when served with oysters, roasted meats and sausages, horseradish is versatile enough to accompany smoked salmon, baked potatoes, or combine with mayonnaise for a zesty sandwich spread. You can even add it to soups and veggies, or use it to kick up your salsa and guacamole a notch! A bit of horseradish added to a Bloody Mary makes for an outstanding wake up call.
Don’t wait, spice up your menu with horseradish!
