A classic recipe for kale mashed potatoes with bacon and oyster mushrooms. A low FODMAP variation on Dutch “boerenkool” ✓ Gluten-free


  • 500 g (17.6 oz) potatoes (use higher starch potatoes, like Russets or Yukon Gold)
  • 300 g (10.6 oz) kale
  • 250 g (8.8 oz) oyster mushrooms
  • 150 g (5.3 oz) bacon strips
  • A splash of lactose-free milk
  • 1 tsp low FODMAP mustard
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

For the gravy

  • 2 tbsp fat from the bacon or 25 g (0.88 oz) butter*
  • 25 g (0.88 oz) gluten-free flour (I use Schär Mix It Universal)
  • 500 ml (16.9 fl. oz.) stock (use a low FODMAP stock cube or powder)


  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
  • Peel the potatoes and cut them into quarters. Make sure you have approximately the same size quarters.
  • Add these to the pan and add the kale to the pan as well. Let it cook for 20 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, clean the oyster mushrooms and cut into pieces.
  • Heat a pan and add the bacon to it. Fry for five minutes and then add the mushrooms. Bake for 5 minutes until golden brown. Turn off the heat and set aside.
  • Save the bacon fat for the gravy. Take 2 tbsp of the fat and put it in a separate pan or use 25 grams of butter.
  • Add 25 grams of gluten-free flour and stir with a whisk until the flour is absorbed by the butter and it is a smooth mixture.
  • Cook this for 2 minutes while stirring continuously.
  • Now add a splash of broth. Gradually add stock until the gravy has the desired consistency. You probably don’t need all the stock. Taste and season with some pepper.
  • Drain the water from the potatoes and kale and mash well.
  • Add the splash of milk, mustard, pepper, salt and nutmeg.
  • Divide over two plates. Make a hole in the middle of the mashed potatoes and pour some gravy in there.
  • Serve the bacon mushroom mixture on top of the kale mashed potatoes.
