Boerenkool Stamppot (kale hodgepodge literary translated farmers cabbage hodgepodge) is a Dutch dish of mashed potatoes mixed with kale. There are sometimes other vegetables mixed into Stamppot, like sauerkraut (zuurkool stamppot), raw endive (andijvie stamppot)or carrots (hutspot). It is commonly served with a smoked sausage (rookworst), spekjes (bacon), pickled baby onions and gherkins. It is also tasty with a small “pond” of brown gravy in the center of the vegetable mixture.
