The subtle heat of wasabi, also known as Japanese horseradish, complemented by a drizzle of toasted sesame oil, lends an element of surprise to these creamy East-West mashers. Wasabi powder can be found in Asian markets and well-stocked supermarkets.
- 2 lbs. Yukon gold or russet potatoes, peeled
- 1 Tbs. wasabi powder
- 1/3 to 1/2 cup plain soy milk, warmed
- 1 1/2 Tbs. toasted sesame oil
Quarter potatoes and place in large saucepan with enough cold water to cover, and bring to a boil. Continue boiling until potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork, about 20 minutes.
In small bowl, combine wasabi powder and 2 Tbs. water to make a thick paste.
Drain potatoes, and mash. Stir in wasabi paste, soy milk, oil and salt to taste, mixing until smooth. Serve hot.
