Ingredients

  • 8 oz
    philidelphia cream cheese
  • 2-3 Tbsp
    powdered wasabi (reconstituted into a paste, do not use premade paste, yuck!!!)
  • 1 Tbsp
    toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 Tbsp
    black sesame seeds (for contrast optional if you can't find them)
  • 2-4 Tbsp
    soy sauce

How to Make Asian Inspired Cream Cheese Appetizer

Step-by-Step

  1. place cream cheese block into a large piece of saran wrap. fold saran wrap in half to cover
  2. using a rolling pin or a bottle of wine or something of the sort roll out into a rectangle about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick
  3. prepare wasabi paste
  4. this is the brand I use, I find it in the international isle at WalMart or my local grocery store
  5. brush a thin layer all over the cream cheese evenly (do not allow areas to get big globs they will be HOT when eating if you do)
  6. using saran wrap to help, roll like a jelly roll
  7. sprinkle with sesame seeds and refrigerate for about 20-30 minutes for best results
  8. when serving pour soy sauce over the top, be generous it is ok if it pools in the dish, as you scoop a portion with your cracker its nice to pick up some of the soy sauce too.
  9. The crackers are really a major key for flavor I prefer the crunchmaster whole grain gluten free crackers (they are kind of rice flavored so they work perfectly with the asian theme) but if you have trouble getting them in your area just experiment with your favorites or maybe a different rice crackers.
