Ingredient Info
Yukon gold potatoes have a sweet, butter-yellow flesh and golden-brown peel. Their waxy texture makes them perfect for roasting or boiling and mashing. Wasabi, also known as Japanese horseradish, is a fiery-hot Asian root. Fresh wasabi is sold at Asian markets and co-ops. Look for wasabi powder near the Asian products at the grocery store.
Kitchen Tip
For easy cleanup, roast the potatoes on parchment paper cut to fit the cookie sheet.
