Quick comfort food
Nothing special in my kitchen – or rather: nearly nothing at all in my kitchen. These weeks, I’m often away from home, so there’s no time for cooking. In addition, my kitchen sink doesn’t work – big repairs are waiting for next week. So dishwashing-intensive food is uncool.
However, last week, I was hungry. So I grabbed some potatoes, some carrots, an onion and some beans and decided to make something that I could call “Stamppot” and tell everybody, that it’s Dutch food…
Well – maybe it’s not completely correct, but the principle that’s said by the name is fulfilled… I know, the meaning of “photogenic” doesn’t correspond to this food, but who cares? It tastes good!
A recipe? Not really needed:
Peel some potatoes (how many? Ask your appetite) and cut them in cubes
peel about 2 carrots and cut them in cubes
Grab 1-2 handfuls of frozen green beans
Make everything boil in water until tender. I steamed it (yeah, all the vitamines and all this health stuff, you know).
Meanwhile cut an onion into rings and sauté it slowly (about 20 minutes or even longer) in a little bit of fat (vegetarian: butter; vegan: oil).
Then stir everything together and mash it (no blender!), season with salt and pepper.
Sit down on your couch, eat it with a spoon, watch a movie and feel good.
