Easy Smashed Potatoes with OKAZU

Smashed potatoes are one of the easiest ways to enjoy potatoes! They're absolutely delicious, and quite nutritious too. We made these ones over the weekend in just under an hour! They were super quick to whip and just so satisfying as they paired very nicely with our grilled tofu and salad.



Preparation time

30 mins

Cooking time

30 mins


  • 2 lbs of mini potatoes
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 jalapeno, seeds removed, diced
  • 2 Tbsp onion, chopped
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • OKAZU Chili Miso, for topping
  • OKAZU Spicy Chili Miso (for spicier potatoes)


1. Boil potatoes until soft (about 25 minutes).

2. Once done boiling, drain the potatoes and allow to cool for 5 minutes. Transfer potatoes to a bowl and add 2 tbsp. olive oil. Shake the bowl to fully coat the potatoes in oil.

3. Pre-heat your oven to 425°F. 

4. Transfer the potatoes to a baking sheet, making sure to spread them apart. Using a potato masher, carefully mash the potatoes to a 1/2 inch height.

5. Sprinkle the garlic powder, chili powder, salt, black pepper, jalapenos and onions over the potatoes.

6. Drizzle the remaining oil over the potatoes and bake in the oven for 30 minutes. Once the potatoes look crispy, remove them from the oven and drizzle over 1-2 tbsp. of Chili OKAZU.
