Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

The last of the series for what we made over the weekend! Fear not, because we have a couple more meals planned. I set up a Google doc and everything. :O So far, we have plans to make gluten-free fig & goat cheese pizza, a spinach cranberry salad, gluten-free cornbread (my friend is on an elimination diet), some kind of unique chili, and pear cranberry ginger snap crumble. :D!

Recipe adapted from here!

Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

Ingredients:
-1 lb Yukon Gold potatoes, peeled + cut into chunks
-3 tbsp butter
-3/4 cup soy milk
-1 1/2 tsp wasabi paste (or more to taste)
-sea salt
-freshly ground black pepper

Instructions:
1) Place potatoes in a large pot + cover with cold water. Add a little salt + bring them to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium + simmer until potatoes are tender (15-20 min).
2) Drain, then return to pan for 1-2 minutes to dry any retained moisture.
3) While potatoes cook, heat the butter + milk in a microwave until butter melts. Whisk in wasabi paste.
4) Add butter mixture to potatoes and mash with a potato masher to desired consistency. Add salt, pepper, wasabi paste to taste.

Monika did a fishtail braid on me! I need to learn how to do something other than a low ponytail, so I may start with this.
