WASABI MASHED POTATOES
- 3 lbs Yukon Gold Potatoes (my favorite for mashies)
- 1 C evaporated milk
- 1/2 C butter
- 4 cloves of garlic, smacked
- 1 Tbls Wasabi paste
- 2 tsp sesame oil
- salt & pepper
- green onions
Peel & cut potatoes and boil until tender.
Meanwhile, in a small sauce pan, combine evaporated milk, butter and smacked garlic. (smacked garlic is just peeled then smacked with the flat side of knife... bigger chunks than a rough chop)
Heat on low heat until butter is melted and hot. Don't boil it.
I usually prefer 'mashed' potatoes... but this time I used my hand mixer, for extra smooth creaminess.
Drain cooked potatoes.
Strain garlic out of milk & butter.
Pour milk & butter into potatoes and whip with hand mixer.
Add in sesame oil, wasabi and salt & pepper to taste.
Garnish with green onions.
