Wasabi Mashed Potato

I made wasabi mashed potatoes for the first time last night and it was delicious if I do say so myself!

I don't have a recipe for this as, with most of my cooking I have an idea in my head what I want to achieve and most of the time it works out to something edible!

I used the last of my mashing potatoes, peeled and cut up into quarters or smaller and then boiled up in salted water.  Once they were easily breaking apart when stuck with a fork I drained them and mashed them with a potato masher.  I added a bit of spread and some soya milk and then used my new trick - an electric beater to get them light and fluffy.  I added in some more soya milk and then about 5cm of wasabi paste and whisked up again.  When I tested the flavour, there was a definite taste of wasabi but not overpowering or any spicy heat.

It was a hit, with hubby going back for an extra helping.  Now I need to think of things that I can serve with wasabi mash - I'm thinking of trying to make some kind of bean burger.
