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.

Servings: 5-6
Prep & Cooking Time: 1 hour


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
Chili OKAZU, for topping


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.

Beet Kinpira

Do you know about kinpira-gobo? We used to make it for our orinigiri (Japanese rice ball) when we had a store front on Dupont street in Toronto. Kinpira is usually made with burdock roots and carrots.

Since I am in Japan, I sent OKAZU to my Japanese friends to see how they use it. 

This recipe is from one of my friends who make kinpira with beets instead of burdock roots and carrots. It's super easy and delicious, so I wanted to share it with you!
