Our friend Karin made us a “Dutch Recipe Cookbook” (she is Dutch, but is now American, however she was born in England, and everyone thinks she’s Canadian) for her wedding gift to us. It’s full of traditional Dutch recipes Karin grew up with and now she wants to share them with the Wilson’s!
The first recipe we tried is officially called “Boerenkoel met Worst” which is a type of “stamppot” or a boiled potato with raw or cooked vegetable all smashed together and served with some meat. Trust us, it is a lot easier to make than it sounds and is delicious!
Thank you Dutch friend Karin!
- Servings – 3
- Prep time – 5 minutes
- Cook time – 20 minutes
- 6 large potatoes, peeled and quartered
- 1 pound of kale (pre-cut if possible)
- 1 smoked kielbasa
- 1/2 cup warm milk
1. In a Dutch oven or large pot, place the potatoes in just enough water to cover them into the pot.
2. Put the kale on top of the potatoes and place the kielbasa on top of the kale.
3. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. Once boiling, turn the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
4. Once the potatoes are cooked through, remove the kale and kielbasa and set aside. Drain the potatoes and mash together the potatoes, kale and warm milk. Add a pat of butter and a pinch of salt to taste. Mash until a creamy consistency is achieved.
5. Slice the kielbasa into coins and serve over the “stamppot.” Enjoy!
