You’ll love the flavorful twist this Wasabi Smashed Potatoes Recipe adds to your favorite American classic!


  • 3 lbs. Yukon Gold or Russet potatoes, cut into large chunks
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 6 Tbsp. butter (I used SmartBalance)
  • 1/2 cup warmed milk
  • 1 Tbsp. wasabi paste (add more/less to taste!)
  • 2 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 4 scallions, diced, and root end trimmed
  • salt + pepper


  1. Place potatoes, garlic and salt in large saucepan, and cover with cold water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20-25 minutes or until the potatoes are done (when a fork can easily be inserted into them). Drain well.
  2. Add the butter, milk, wasabi paste, and soy sauce. Use a potato masher to mash well and combine. Then with a wooden spoon, mix in scallions and continue mixing to your desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste.
