As autumn and winter are approaching very quickly, we offer you a recipe for a traditional Dutch winterdish. Stamppot means that the vegetables and potatoes are mixed to a smooth consistency. It is a typical winterdish at home. This dish is eaten as a main meal dish, either with some soup to start, and followed up with fruit, as the dish is very nourishing.


  • 2-3 lb. curly kale (Boerenkool in Dutch)
  • 3 lb. potatoes
  • Milk
  • Salt
  • 1 lb. smoked sausage (in Dutch: Rookworst) or Frankfurters
  • 4 tablespoons fat, butter or margarine
  • Pepper


Strip, wash and cut up the kale very finely. Boil kale in little boiling water with salt (about 40 minutes). Add peeled and cut potatoes and sausage and enough water to prevent burning (cooking time about 30 minutes, instructions may vary depending on brand of sausage).
Remove sausage from pan, mash remainder and stir in boiled milk until smooth. Taste and add some pepper if desired.

Serves 4.
