Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

I love wasabi and I love mashed potatoes, so what the heck, why not combine the two?

Serves 4 as a side dish


700g potatoes, quartered
2 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon – 1 tablespoon wasabi paste (adjust to your taste)
1 stalk green onion, thinly sliced
1 tablespoon soy sauce

  1. Place the potatoes in a pot and cover with cold water. 
  2. 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 potatoes are done. 
  3. Drain and return the potatoes to the pot. 
  4. Smash the potatoes with a fork or potato masher. 
  5. Add the butter, milk and wasabi paste.
  6. Mix to incorporate but don’t mix over-mix otherwise they’ll be pasty. 
  7. Portion out the potatoes on plates, throw on some green onions and a dribble of soy sauce. Voila!
