Wasabi and Green Onion Mashed Potatoes

7 Oct

Wasabi and Green Onion Mashed Potatoes are a special way to serve up everyone favorite side dish this holiday season.  Asian flavors add a kick to potatoes.

Mashed Potatoes are my favorite side dish, they go along with nearly everything (I think so at least).  I like them hand mashed so they are still chunky, with butter and salt.  That was true unti I found Wasabi and Green Onion Mashed Potatoes.  I never thought that wasabi would be something I wanted mixed in foods other than sushi, but it really adds something extra special to the potatoes.  The amount called for in this recipe is the perfect amount, just enough to add some flavor, but not overpower the other delicate flavors.  The amount of “heat” can be adjusted to you taste, if you wish.

I love the salty flavor that the sesame oil adds, a little goes a long way and tastes amazing combined with the wasabi.  Pump up your mashed potatoes next time you and you will never want to go back to plain butter and salt/pepper.

    That sounds really good. I have a recipe for a wasabi hummus that is great.
