Dutch Stamppot is comfort food of the Netherlands. Kale mashed potatoes, topped with smoky sausages. A perfect hearty fall or winter meal.
If you're in Holland or Amsterdam in the cooler months, you're likely to find stamppot on restaurant menus. It is quintessential Dutch fare and it comes in many varieties.
- You might find a version with potatoes that are mashed with bacon and curly endive, and piled onto a plate with a large Rookworst (Dutch sausage) draped over the top.
- Or you might find stamppot made with carrot-onion-potato mash under a large slab of bacon.
- You get the idea.
- For this stamppot recipe I chose kale for the mash, mainly because it's healthy and I love it!
The smoked sausages are sliced and browned to bring out lots of delicious flavor!
The kale is sautéed with onions and garlic before its mashed with the potatoes.
A drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of chopped scallions are the finishing touch!
You don't hear much about Dutch food. The Dutch are well know for their painters (Van Gogh!) and their Tulips, but not so much for their cuisine. That's not to say it isn't delicious!
Dutch food is simple, hearty, and rustic, which describes some of my favorite dishes. On a cold, gray winter day, Dutch Stamppot is a bowl of comfort and delight!
