This Sunday Spring will finally kick in, whe have been waiting for better weather. Because whe had a verry cold winter whit lots of snow. Don't understand me wrong i really love snow and the Dutch foods for this period( "stampot" mashed potato with different kind of vegetable). But spring time brings other vegetable and fruits again. Soon whe whil be able to eat white asparagus and strawberry again, which i always buy from a farmer 10 minutes by bike from my home. Straight from the field...hhmm delicious, can't hardly wait.
But to say goodbye to winter i cooked the last winter "stampot", witlof/apple mash.
Ingredients ( 4 servings)
1 kg potato ( for masching)
750 g witlof
100 ml milk
2 tblspoons olive oil
3 tblspoons butter
Pork (any kind you like)
Peel, cut and wash the potatoes. Boil them in water with salt for 20-25 minutes until tender. Chop the parsley and clean the witlof, cut these in strips. Peel the apples en remove the core. Half the apple in dices, the other in slices.
Heat the oil in a wok pan, and stir-fry the witlof for 4 minutes. Meanwhile bake or grill the apple slices. Then i grilled the pork untill done.
Heat the milk, drain the potatoes and mash them together with the butter. Mix in the witlof, parsley and apples dices. Garnisch with the apple slices.
