Today, I have a typical Dutch winter recipe for you: low FODMAP pumpkin potato mash! A vegetarian mash with pumpkin, goat cheese and pecans. Tasted and tested by my boyfriend. Why not by me personally, you might wonder? Well, let me explain.
99% of the recipes that I share on the blog are tasted and tested by me. I make all recipes myself and I find it a bit weird to share recipes on my blog that I don’t like myself. I like almost all foods, but there is thing that I really don’t eat and that is meals with mashed potatoes. I really don’t like the structure of mashed potatoes and I just cannot eat it.
But I don’t think the fact that I don’t like mashed potatoes should mean that I don’t share any recipes with it on the blog. Here in the Netherlands, potato mash is a very popular dish. We eat it as a full meal and it is called “stamppot”. I get a lot of questions to share low FODMAP potato mash recipes. Luckily, I have a boyfriend who loves mashed potatoes and also really likes “stamppot”. I created a potato mash recipe with delicious ingredients: pumpkin, potato, goat cheese, rocket lettuce and pecans. Quite funny, separately I love these ingredients, but when they are together in a mash, I don’t want them anymore ;) My boyfriend has tried this recipe for me and decided whether it was tasty enough to share with you and luckily it was!
This dish is ready within 20 minutes, so it is ideal for a weekday!
