One of my favorite meals is mashed potatoes with Asian style fixins': garlic cloves, sesame seeds & oil, nori flakes, sea salt and black pepper.  Besides oatmeal, this is one of my breakfast meals in rotation. It's also great as a snack. I love having this nowadays because it helps warm me up.

Steaming is a healthy way to prepare potatoes. My acupuncturist recommended steaming as a way to strengthen my body, creating more energy. It's to help with those spells of fatigue I get from time to time.

The nori flakes are great for metal detoxification and gives a chewy texture when mixed in with the hot potatoes. I buy a 50 sheet package which lasts for about 3 months. I take 2 sheets (2 per person) at a time, cut them into strips, then into 1-inch squares.

Toasted sesame oil is much more flavorful than sesame oil. It's better to add it at the end of cooking, since heat will make the flavor fade.

SERVINGS: 2-3

INGREDIENTS

6 red potatoes, each about the size of tennis balls
1/2 each elephant garlic clove, peeled

1 tablespoon raw honey
1/2-3/4 teaspoon sea salt

3 sheets nori, cut into 1-inch squares
1 tablespoon organic toasted sesame oil, (per serving)
1 tablespoon sesame seeds, black or white

DIRECTIONS

  1. Bring a medium pot about 1/3 full of water to a boil (enough to have the pot going for about 20-30 minutes and not run out of water).
  2. While waiting for the water to boil, roughly chop the potatoes and garlic. Add potatoes and garlic to the steamer basket.
  3. Cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. It is done when the potatoes are soft when pierced with a fork.
  4. Discard the water from the pot, move the potatoes and garlic from the steamer to the pot. Add the honey & salt in with the potatoes and garlic and mash altogether. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Enjoy while hot and save the rest as cold leftovers for later in the week.
