Dutch mash-pot /stamppot, low carb vegan

Dutch mash-pot (stamppot) is a traditional dish made from mashed potatoes and vegetables. It is similar to Irish colcannon. Many Dutch people still eat this at least once a week, especially in winter. It is like ultimate comfort food and it used to be one of my favorite meals when I was a child. It is pretty quick to prepare too! Fortunately, it is very easy to make it vegan and low carb. Just replace the mashed potatoes with a low carb alternative like rutabaga or cauliflower.

Ingredients

  • 300-400 gram rutabaga or cauliflower, chopped
  • a few tablespoons of unsweetened plant milk or cooking cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons oil, separated
  • 1 leek, in half rings (you can substitute onion of spring onion)
  • 250 gram button mushrooms, sliced
  • 300 gram raw escarole or lettuce (or boiled kale), shredded
  • 200 gram tempeh, cubed small
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

Bereiding

Bring water to a boil in a pot and cook the rutabaga until very tender, about 10-15 minutes. Mash into a puree using a potato masher, large fork or food processor. Add a few tablespoons of plant milk or cooking cream to make it nicely smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.

In the mean time, saute the leek and mushrooms in the first tablespoon of oil until slightly browned and tender. Mix the cooked vegetables into the mash and also mix in the raw escarole or lettuce so they wilt a little. Keep everything warm in very low heat while you prepare the tempeh.

Heat the second tablespoon of oil and fry the tempeh until nicely browned. Mix in the soy sauce and smoked paprika and cook for one minute more.

Schoop the mash-pot onto plates and sprinkle with the tempeh.

Vegan protein pancakes, low carb I have long lamented the lack of a good low carb vegan pancake recipe. Thankfully my fellow Dutchy and low carb genius Alynda solved the problem, by tweaking my waffle recipe into pancakes. It never quite worked out when I tried to do that, so I’m really quite indebted to her. She shared this wonderful […]

Seitan seaweed sausage, vegan In Holland, we have a famous vegan company called ‘the Dutch Weedburger’. The ‘weed’ in their burgers is seaweed and it’s totally delicious. Be sure to visit their restaurant if you are ever in Amsterdam. Recently they also started making seitan sausages with seaweed in them. It sounds weird, but the seaweed adds a delicious […]

Cashew-millet cheese with geotrichum This is hands down the tastiest vegan cheese I’ve ever tried, bought or home-made! It is firm and creamy at the same time and has a lovely full goat-ish flavor. It tastes great in sandwiches or salads, but it really shines as part of a cheese platter where you can taste it on its own. […]

Low carb vegan empanadas Oh wow, these empanadas! They have crispy edges, crumbly buttery dough and a nice hearty filling. I didn’t think it would be possible to make something like this with low carb flour, let alone without gluten. I’m loving it. Once you get the hang of rolling out and shaping the dough, these are surprisingly easy […]

Turkish pizza, low carb vegan Dutch food culture has received some lovely influence from Turkish immigrants and their descendants. This has resulted in many variations on traditional foods, such a lahmacun, also known as Turkish pizza. It’s basically a pan fried flatbread with tomato meat sauce baked onto it. The flat bread is stuffed with salad and rolled up. In […]

Miso soup, low carb vegan David and I have been watching some documentaries about Japan (check Japanology on Youtube), and we like trying some Japanese food while we’re at it. This time it was miso soup, a big bowlful of Japanese comfort food that is super quick to make. The miso (fermented soy paste) makes for a lovely creamy broth […]

Nutty fudge, low carb vegan Getting enough fat on a low carb vegan diet can be a bit of a challenge since many vegan protein sources such as tofu, tempeh and seitan are relatively lean. These healthy fat bombs are a delicious way to make up for that. Go easy on them if you are looking to loose weight, but […]
