Colette... Wasabi Question!

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive April 2006: Colette... Wasabi Question!
By Angellew on Thursday, April 6, 2006 - 04:32 pm:

I noticed in the thread about "What's for dinner tonight" that you made wasabi mashed potatoes!!!

I'm a huge wasabi fan... can't get enough of it! I recently bought wasabi powder instead of the tube, and was wondering if that was what you used, and, if so, how???? I tried to make the mashed potatoes with it and I put in a ton and there really wasn't much kick!?! You can stick your finger and in the powder and it tastes like nothing. Am I doing something wrong?

I've used both the powder and the paste and the paste seems much better. Maybe if you reconstitute the powder first and then throw it in the potatoes? I used the powder last night and had to put TONS in. Sometimes Market Basket has the tube.

Now where is your ricotta cake recipe??!!

Thanks Jewlz! That's what I did the first time, and... so-so! I think you're right, Colette, reconstituting first may help. I found a website this morning that says the powder is water and time activated!?! It said, make it up, with the water, COVER it and let sit for five minutes or so before using!

I just figured the powder would be easier than he tube... and fresher!

Now... I do both ricotta pie (you know, basic italian one crust with the citrus zest) and a ricotta cake, which we have always made for Easter, which is half cake and half ricotta! Let me know which! I've love to share the recipe!

The cake please! It sounds great!
