Ideas for dinner tonight. Household and kitchen tips, recipes, tweaks. What's worked great, and not so great.
Simple, simple, simple! Oh… Yes, and delicious! Potatoes are so versatile, you can dress them up in so many ways. This is a nice way to add delicate flavor up to quite a bang, depending on the amount of wasabi paste you incorporate.
For two servings you’ll need:
6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed and quartered
kosher salt and pepper to taste
wasabi paste to taste (start light, you can always add more)
Boil quartered potatoes in a medium sauce pan until fork tender. Drain water, add butter, salt pepper. Using a potato masher, or large fork, mash potatoes so they are still chunky. Add wasabi paste, gently blend to mix.
Other variations could be to use a Tablespoon or so of Dijon mustard, (doesn’t sound very good, but it really is!) Shaved Parmesan cheese is an excellent alternative also. Use your imagination, and what’s in your pantry!
