About Sprout

Remember the recipe ‘Stamp-Pot‘? A great dish for this cold winter weather and that’s why.. Here is another stamppot recipe! This time with brussels sprouts, sage and with ‘rookworst’ (it’s a Dutch sausage: smoked sausage) from the Vegetarsiche Slager (Vegetarian Butcher). This one is soooo good. I even find it much better than the original rookworst, because the taste and structure are the same, but it doesn’t have all the fat dripping out (also, it doesn’t have any mashed up animals in it, which is a big pre!). Unfortunately, they don’t sell this in the UK (yet?), but you can use any other plant-based sausage to substitute it. Preferably sausages with a smoky flavour. I loveeee brussels sprouts, but even people who aren’t a big fan of this least liked vegetable, do often like this recipe. So give it a try!

Stamp-Pot

img_8328Living in London, I often get the question ‘What is typical Dutch dish?’. Well.. There are not a lot of Dutch dishes. Of course there are the famous ‘stroopwafels’ and ‘speculaas’, but the only thing I can come up with is stamppot. What is basically mashed potatoes with vegetables mashed in it and a piece of meat on the side. There are different combinations (with kale as the most popular). It’s not a dish to be super proud of. This must be the reason that Holland is famous for a lot of things, but definitely not for the Dutch kitchen. Stamppot is an ok dish though, people eat it mostly in the winter. It’s a typical winter-dish in Holland. I thought it will be a nice dish on the last day of March. To really finish off the winter. I’m so ready for lots of sun! I was never a huge fan, but as I am a huge fan of Asian kitchen, I made a combination of the two. The one with potatoes, carrots and onions is called ‘hutspot’ and if I had to choose, then that is my favourite, so I used this one for todays recipe. I happened to really love it now, haha! I hope you will love it too.

-1 tbs sesame seed oil
-1/2 tsp coriander (ground)
-1/2 tsp cumin seeds

-Put the potatoes, the carrots and 1/4 of the onion in a pan and let it boil for 20 min. Until the potatoes and carrots are soft.
-Fry the onion until the edges start to get brown. Add the garlic, the coriander and the cumin and fry for 2 minutes. Add the spinach in the last minute and until it slinks.
-Add this mixture, the sesame seed oil and the milk to the potato-carrot mix.

*The fillet steak on the picture is from the brand Vivera. They do not sell this in the UK yet, but they soon will. It’s an amazing brand I’m sure you will love. So stay tuned! If you want to make this dish now, I recommend eating it on it’s own or to replace it with something else, like sausages.
