My FAMOUS Wasabi Cream Cheeze Dip

I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like this dip, plain and simple. It satisfies any sushi craving and it’s so good you can’t stop eating it. It’s a guaranteed appetizer success! I usually bring enough for a double batch because it disappears so fast and people are sad when it’s gone so I make another one! My sister has a very bland palate and she loves it! This is a little too hot for most kids, my daughter has never tried it but she might like it considering she likes wasabi seaweed… yep, she’s definitely my daughter! 😉

Wasabi Cream Cheeze Dip


* 1 tub of Tofutti Better Than Cream Cheese (non-dairy cream cheese, found at Sprouts or Trader Joe’s)

* Wasabi paste – you’ll need anywhere from 1 Tbsp to 3 Tbsp depending on how hot you like it

* 2-3 Tbsp roasted sesame seeds

* 3-5 Tbsp or more soy sauce

* 2-3 Tbsp pickled ginger (pink or white)

* 1-2 green onions, chopped

* Rice crackers to serve


1. Divide cream cheeze in half from tub, smear one half on the bottom of a shallow dish in a circular pattern (use a stiff spatula)

2. Spread wasabi paste onto first layer – Don’t be shy! I use a decent amount otherwise you can’t taste it

3. Smear other half of cream cheeze on top of wasabi, try to make it even with the first circular layer

3. Cover the top and sides with sesame seeds

4. Chop pickled ginger and green onions and sprinkle on top

5. Pour soy sauce around the dip before serving with rice crackers

6. Prepare to make another batch soon!

    Sounds Yummy! Can’t wait to try it! I think that little tube of Wasabi has milk in it. I could be wrong but when I looked on a box here it said milk. Now I always use the powdered stuff.

    • I always assumed it was vegan! Oops! I use powdered most of the time… Thanks for the tip!!!

    Omg…I know I’m a little late to the party but can you say “Bazinga!” We adored this dip and I find myself dreaming of it…in fact I woke up this morning hoping for some leftover, but alas there was none left! Thank you for all of your wonderful recipes…they have helped me make the seamless transition into an animal free diet! I don’t even miss it! Thank you!
