Dutch Stamppot – A Vegetable Mash

Need a delicious new recipe the whole family will love? This cozy and colorful Dutch stamppot is easy to make and cooks fast. Best of all, this oh-so-yummy vegetable mash is packed with nutrients.

 

Stamppot is classic Dutch winter dish made with mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables usually served with rookworst. Omit the sausage and you’ll still have a tasty, vegetarian meal. There are almost no rules about what goes into a stamppot, thus you’ll find so many variations (as I learned from my Dutch friend Juliana). Mashed potatoes with:

  • kale- stamppot boerenkool (similar to Croatian Swiss chard and potato recipe)
  • onions and carrots – hutspot
  • sauerkraut – zuurkool stamppot
  • endive – andijviestamppot

 

Some include beets, mushrooms, and various other vegetables. The choice is yours. The recipe below is a combination of hutspot and boerenkool plus more yummy vegetables for a delicious wholesome meal.

 

Since this recipe requires lots of peeling and chopping, I simplified it by cooking everything together. However, you can brown onions in oil first (even use bacon) before adding them to cooked vegetables for added flavor.

This vegetable mash is a classic Dutch winter dish

INGREDIENTS:
Serves 4-6

  • 2 large starchy potatoes, such as Russet or Idaho
  • 1 small sweet potato (yam)
  • 1 small butternut squash
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 rutabaga
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 large leek
  • 1 bunch curly kale
  • 4 tablespoons butter (1/4 cup),
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • A pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 pound Dutch Rookworst (smoked sausage)

 

~ Free Tip ~

  • Dutch Rookworst is smoked pork sausage similar to Polish Kielbasa. You could also use spicy sausages like hot Italian sausage or Spanish Chorizo.
  • Use any vegetables you prefer: parsnip or turnip instead of rutabaga and Swiss chard or Savoy cabbage instead of kale.

 

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Peel and chop potatoes, squash, carrots, and rutabaga into 1-inch pieces. Wash any soil from the leek and kale. Trim any coarse stems then slice both into ½-inch pieces.
  2. Place all the vegetables in a large pot and add enough water to barely cover. Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer until vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the sausage(s) until nicely browned on both sides and heated through.
  4. Drain the vegetables well, add butter then mash but don’t purée.  Season the stamppot with nutmeg, salt, and pepper.
  5. Serve with sausage(s) arranged on top.

    Jas, this looks so yummy. I am learning a lot from your blog (as a self-professed non-cook). I love to experiment every once in a while, though, and this vegetable mash looks amazing. I have a few Dutch friends who I may try and impress using your recipe!

    Trust you to make stamppot, Jas! Lol. You call it veg mash; I call it baby food. This happens to be one of those dishes I haven’t got my stomach around. Yet.

      LOL, don’t mash it into baby food, Ann. Leave some chunks. We really liked it! Nobody wants boring mashed potatoes, ha! 😉 Have a great weekend!
