These potatoes go great with the Ginger Flank Steak from the last Sunday Dinner post and was part of Rachel Ray’s segment on 30 Minute Meals.
2 1/2 to 3 lbs. Idaho potatoes, 4 large potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1/4 to 1/2 c. cream
1 to 2 T. wasabi paste (depends on how hot you want it!)
Place potatoes in a pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil, salt the potatoes and cook until tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Drain potatoes and add them back to the hot pot. Smash the potatoes with a masher to desired consistency with the cream and wasabi. Adjust salt to taste.
I used wasabi powder as I did not have wasabi paste. I added 1 teaspoon to start and added until the heat was just right. Be careful with wasabi-it might not taste hot right away, but it will come back and kick you! I also mashed my potatoes as I usually would.
