Wasabi Infused Mashed Potatoes

I invited the whole family over for dinner last night, and followed this super simple recipe for mashed potatoes via Steamy Kitchen . It adds a sharp kick to an otherwise classic comfort food.

Wasabi Infused Mashed Potatoes

1 1/2 pounds potatoes
2 tablespoons butter
5 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon – 1 tablespoon wasabi paste
1 stalk green onion, minced
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Place the potatoes in a pot and cover with cool water to cover by 1 inch. Bring the pot to a boil and cook for 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are cooked through. (To check, pierce a potato with a paring knife. If the knife slides easily in and out, the potates are done.)

Drain and return the potatoes to the pot.

Smash the potatoes with a fork or potato masher.

Add the butter, milk and wasabi paste. Mix to incorporate but don’t mix overmix or they will become pasty.

Add salt and pepper and throw on a three-finger pinch of minced green onions and a dribble of soy sauce.

(serves 4 as side dish)
