We spiked these savory mashed potatoes with wasabi powder, and wow, do they have fantastic flavor. They also get their creaminess from an irresistible mixture of reduced-fat milk and sour cream, as well as a touch of butter. Fresh chives and a little bit of salt help bring everything together. We call for adding 1 tsp. wasabi powder, but feel free to increase that amount if you and your guests are feeling bold. These potatoes are excellent with roast chicken, pork, or beef; you'll want to scale everything up so you can keep a batch in the fridge for a handy side at all times.

Ingredients

Uncooked potato(es)

4 medium, peeled and cut into large chunks (about 2 lbs)

2% reduced fat milk

½ cup(s)

Wasabi powder

1 tsp, or more to taste

Reduced-fat sour cream

2 Tbsp

Salted butter

1 Tbsp

Chives

1 Tbsp, fresh, minced

Table salt

½ tsp

Instructions

  1. Boil potatoes in a large pot of water over high heat until very tender when pricked with a fork, about 15 to 20 minutes; drain and mash potatoes with a hand masher or electric mixer.
  2. Heat milk in a small saucepan over medium heat for 5 minutes; add wasabi powder and stir to dissolve. Add milk mixture, sour cream, butter, chives and salt to potatoes; stir to combine. Yields a generous 1/2 cup per serving.
