Recipe type: dinner
Cuisine: dutch
Serves: 2
Ingredients
  • 6 Handfuls of large white and sweet potatoes cut and peeled.
  • 500 gr of shredded and washed kale, without the stems.
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • pepper
  • sauce:
  • 3 large diced onions
  • 4 handfuls of mushrooms of your choice cleaned and sliced
  • 2 tbsp organic soy sauce (or tamari)
  • 1 tbsp organic balsamic vinegar
  • 300 ml water
  • salt
  • pepper
  • honey
  • olive oil
  • Add your favorite meatballs, bratwurst, sausage or a favorite vegetarian variety. (pictures is a vegetarian meatball made with organic soy)
Instructions
  1. Cook the potatoes until they are soft, and add the kale on top to steam.
  2. Get rid of the excess water and mash the kale and potatoes together.
  3. Take pot of heat and keep lid closed to keep the mash warm.
  4. You can add some olive oil to make the mash smoother.
  5. For the sauce:
  6. Stir fry the cut mushrooms and put aside on a plate.
  7. Then stir fry the onions in the pan you used for the mushrooms, with olive oil, salt, pepper until golden brown.
  8. Add the soy sauce, water, balsamic vinegar, honey and stir.
  9. Use a blender to blend it all together.
  10. Use a sieve to remove the large parts so a sauce remains (the onions you can use for something else like a soup, or stew)
  11. Taste the sauce and add any of the ingredients to make it taste more to your liking. Extra honey means sweeter, extra salt means saltier, extra balsamic vinegar means more sour, etc, more water means thinner sauce etc.
  12. Add the mushrooms.
  13. Let it simmer on lower heat for a while with your (vegetarian) meat balls in this sauce until cooked.
  14. Serve the mash on a plate, and make a dent in the middle in which you pour the sauce.
  15. Meatball on the side: Enjoy!
Notes
Use a large pot to cook your potatoes and kale.
You can add only white potatoes or only sweet potatoes for a twist.
You can make the mash smoother by adding a bit of butter, or milk, or olive oil.
You can also make the mash smoother by adding dices of your favorite hard cheese and mix it together until they become chewy. It gives a nice surprise of flavor and texture when eating the mash. ( I added organic cheese with rosemary from a local organic farm in my hometown)
It tastes great with some nice organic mustard.
