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
  1. Peel & cut potatoes and boil until tender.
  2. 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)
  3. Heat on low heat until butter is melted and hot. Don't boil it.
  4. I usually prefer 'mashed' potatoes... but this time I used my hand mixer, for extra smooth creaminess.
  5. Drain cooked potatoes.
  6. Strain garlic out of milk & butter.
  7. Pour milk & butter into potatoes and whip with hand mixer.
  8. Add in sesame oil, wasabi and salt & pepper to taste.
  9. Mix well.
  10. Garnish with green onions.
  11. Enjoy!
I need a side dish to go with Miso Ginger Chicken. I'd heard of Wasabi Mashed Potatoes but never tried them. So I looked at a lot of recipes on line, then just kinda winged it!
