Never heard of Wasabi? Well, Wasabi is basically Japanese Horseradish. Just like regular horseradish, it is very spicy. This recipe calls for wasabi powder which is not as hot but still packs a punch.

The good thing is the mint leaves in this mashed potato recipe does a good job of offsetting the heat of the wasabi. Don’t be fooled though, these mashed potatoes are not for those that don’t like spicy food.

The star of this recipe though is the fresh mint. I have a small mint plant in my kitchen so it’s very convenient when I need some fresh mint for a recipe.

I will admit that I don’t often use fresh mint but I loved what it did to this dish so much that I need to try and incorporate it into future dishes.

Wasabi Powder is often used for making sushi. It can also add some heat to salad dressings, mayonnaise, vinaigrettes, and dips. You can also make a wasabi paste by mixing it with a little hot water.

    These potatoes are very tasty. The mint adds just a little extra flavor that makes the potatoes stand out from the ordinary ones.
