TYPICAL DUTCH FOOD: StampPoT with endiVe

                                                          endive
The other night we ate stamppot. It is a typical Dutch food.
Stamppot is mashed potatoes with endive. We call it Andijvie Stamppot.
Stamppot is prepared by boiling the vegetables and potatoes separately. Once done, the potatoes are added to the same pot as the vegetables and all are thoroughly mashed together with stamppot gravy. Some people add applesauce to this mix for extra flavor and/or to soften the mix. A rookworst is the preferred piece of meat to be added to the dish. Some eat it together with meatballs.
There are various kinds of stamppot.
- mashed potatoes with onions and carrots
- mashed pototoes with kale
- mashed potatoes with sauerkraut
- mashed potatoes with spinach
- mashed potatoes with runner beans
- mashed potatoes with sprouts
- mashed potatoes with cabbage
Dutch people eat stamppot in the winter because this food gives more resistance against the cold weather. 
In my next post I will show you how to make Boerenkool (kale) Stamppot. We eat potatoes four times a week and the rest of the days pasta and rice. My kids like rice. They are really Filipinos.

About this Blog

I make this blog for foreigners who will live in this country, THE NETHERLANDS. Foreigners who are engaged or married they have to learn a lot of things about their new home like the culture, architectures, landscape, government, dikes etc. Especially the Dutch language which is very important in their social life. It is very difficult if they cannot communicate with other people. Most people speak Dutch, only few speaks English.
For visitors and readers, this will give you an idea what this country is. This small country ranks no. 5 in the economic stability in EUROPE. Their architectures like palaces, castles, dikes, ports (air and sea) are amazing.
Their culture is very interesting.
