Boerenkool met Worst (Kale with Smoked Sausage)

A hearty Dutch favourite!


1.5 kg of kale
1.5 kg of potatoes
1 smoked sausage
1 tablespoon of butter
A pinch of salt


Remove the kale leaves, wash well in cold water and cut finely. Cook the kale for about 10 minutes in a little salted water (until half cooked) and drain. In the meantime, peel the potatoes and chop into pieces. Place the potatoes into a pan and ensure that they are half covered with water. Next, put the kale on top of the potatoes and the sausage on top of this. Leave this to cook on a low heat for about 30 minutes until almost dry and the water has evaporated. Remove the sausages from the pan, mash the kale together with the potatoes until smooth and add a knob of butter. Lastly, cut the smoked sausage into slices and either mix into the mash or serve separately.
