Do you simply adore a traditional zuurkoolstamppot from the Netherlands? Well, now you can sample this delicious Dutch dish, made from sauerkraut and mash, in a variety of exciting new ways!

Dutch sauerkraut mash recipes

Zuurkoolstamppot met ananas en rozijnen (sauerkraut mash with pineapple and raisins)

Ingredients

750 grams of potatoes
500 grams of sauerkraut
1 tin of pineapple (cubes)
3 tablespoons of raisins
1 smoked sausage

Preparation

First, peel, rinse and cook the potatoes until soft. Meanwhile, in a separate pan, cook the sauerkraut and raisins in the pineapple juice (from the tin) for approximately 20 minutes. Once ready, drain both the potatoes and sauerkraut with raisins, and then mash thoroughly together. Finally, stir in the pineapple cubes and serve your mash with smoked sausage on the side. Alternatively, try mixing a little fried bacon into your mash for added flavour.

Zuurkoolstamppot met banaan en kaas (sauerkraut mash with banana and cheese)

Ingredients

750 grams of potatoes
500 grams of sauerkraut
50 ml of milk
250 grams of young cheese
2 ripe bananas

Preparation

First, peel, rinse and cook the potatoes until soft. Meanwhile cook the sauerkraut in a separate pan, for approximately 20 minutes. Once ready, drain both the potatoes and the sauerkraut and then place them together in a pan. Now stir in the milk and thoroughly mash. Lastly, dice the cheese and slice the bananas before mixing both into your sauerkraut mash. Sauerkraut mash with banana and cheese is particularly popular with children, and is thus an excellent way of introducing fussy little eaters to the unique flavour of sauerkraut!
