Recipe of the Month #1: Miso Mashed Potatoes

If you fancy some fusion in your Thanksgiving meal, try this recipe. Adding the miso helps bring a level of digestibility to the potatoes.

Servings: 6 Prep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 25 minutes


  • 2 pounds red potatoes, scrubbed (do not peel the skin!!)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon miso paste*
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 teaspoons minced fresh chives, parsley or green onion


In a large pot, add the potatoes and cover with water by 2 inches. Bring to a boil, then turn heat to medium and let cook for 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are easily pierced with a fork. Drain the water, leaving the potatoes in the pot. Mash the potatoes with a potato masher. Add in the remaining ingredients and mix well. Taste and season with additional miso or milk, if needed.

*Miso can be found near the tofu in most super markets, or in Asian markets.
