Wasabi is a spice from Japan, found in specialty stores and in some supermarkets now carrying McCormick's new selection of spices and herbs. Wasabi is Japanese horseradish, which is similar to American horseradish. Adds a nice flavor to these Wasabi Mashed Potatoes.
3 pounds russet potatoes, peeled, cut into 2-inch pieces
3/4 cup 1-percent milk
1 tablespoon wasabi powder
1/4 cup butter
Place potatoes in a large pot of cold salted water. Boil until tender, about twenty minutes. Drain. Return to pot and mash.
Combine milk and wasabi powder in small bowl. Stir to dissolve powder. Add milk mixture and butter to potatoes. Using electric mixer beat potatoes until fluffy and smooth. Season potatoes to taste with salt and pepper. You may prepare this up to two hours ahead of time if desired. Cover and keep at room temperature. Warm mashed potatoes over low heat, stirring frequently.
Note: If you love spicy foods, you can double the amount of wasabi; however, if you are not a lover of spicy foods and are not familiar with wasabi, go easy at first try.
Recipe makes 6 servings.
