Simple Dutch stamppot
Roughly slice your onions and green vegetables, chop the potatoes into small chunks, and add all to a large pot.
Add water so that it just covers the vegetables and bring to the boil.
Once boiling, lower the heat and simmer for 20 minutes.
Drain the water and mash all the ingredients together.
At this point you can fry your bacon or sausage in the pot along with the vegetables or cook separately and serve on the side.
Mix in your butter, creme fraiche or olive oil.
Add salt, pepper and grated cheese to taste.
Remember to freeze any portions you don’t eat this time to save them from going in the bin. A great time saver for a simple meal another day when you may be busy.Defrost your frozen portions in the fridge and use within 24 hours, or in a microwave on 'defrost' directly before use.
