This is one of the dishes my Grandmother, who was Dutch, prepared for us kids when we visited her - and we all loved it. Hutspot is a traditional Dutch dish, that everyone in the Netherlands knows. It's simple to prepare, very filling and delicious as both a side dish or a main course - real comfort food.
Prep and cook time: 30 min
For 4 servings as a side dish or 2 servings as a main course:
- 500 grams potatoes
- 300 grams carrots
- 1 large white or yellow onion
- 500 millilitre vegetable stock *)
- 3 table spoons vegetable oil
- 1/2 tea spoon dried dill
- black pepper
Peel and cut the potatoes, carrots and onion into pieces. Heat vegetable stock with dill in a large pot, add the cut vegetables and cook until they are soft.
Mash the vegetables and the vegetable stock with a potato masher. Add vegetable oil and as much salt and pepper as you like. Stir well.
*) I like my hutspot rather soft and creamy, if you want a firmer hutspot, use 350 to 400 millilitres of vegetable stock.
Enjoy your meal & eet smakelijk,
