Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

No more boring taters! Try this Japanese spice to "spice up those spuds a notch". You can find it in most supermarkets these days, just ask which aisle. These taters are a great companion for steak but also nice with fish and poultry.


Wasabi is not just for Sushi anymore. There are many, many uses for Wasabi including main dishes and yummy salad dressing. :-)


  • 2 russet potatoes
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 tsp. wasabi powder, or more to taste


Peel and cut potatoes in to quarters and boil until tender. Drain and mash well. Add butter and stir until butter is melted. Add remaining ingredients and mix well.

I like to make up an extra batch to save time for later enjoyment because mashers refrigerate/freeze well to reheat at a later time.

Where do you buy the Wasabi powder?

Editor's Note: Wasabi powder is widely available at your local supermarket. Look in the Asian/International aisle. It should be near the soy sauce and teriyaki sauce. It also sometimes comes premixed in a tube.
