Wasabi Mashed Potatoes

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup)
"I used to think mashed potatoes could only be good if they were smothered in butter, but one day I improvised this recipe. These potatoes are great paired with hearty red-sauced meat or Asian-inspired fish entrées, like sesame grilled tuna or honey-orange salmon." -John Tyler Connoley, Silver City, NM

Ingredients

  • 4 cups cubed peeled baking potato (about 1 3/4 pounds)
  • 3/4 cup plain low-fat yogurt
  • 3/4 teaspoon wasabi powder (dried Japanese horseradish)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
