wasabi mashed potatoes
A raw take on my favourite non-raw side dish. i’m having a stressful evening and needed something comforting so i figured i would try it out. it came out fairly well and was super quick! i know wasabi isn’t raw, but it’s like most spices to me in that i will eat the natural, organic version. if you don’t eat wasabi, this would taste great with lots of garlic in it too!
1 head cauliflower, coarsely chopped
¼ cup pine nuts
2 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon natural wasabi powder
1 teaspoon salt
mix the wasabi powder with 1-2 tbsp of water in a bowl and let stand while you finish the remaining steps. every wasabi is different so test the stregth before you dump it all in.
place cauliflower, pine nuts, salt and olive oil in a food processor and process for about 5 minutes, scraping the sides often, until you have a creamy texture resembling mashed potatoes. add in wasabi and water mixture and process again to mix.
this can be placed in the dehydrator to warm for a couple of hours if you have time. i usually eat it cold or warm very gently in a pot.
