One of the most traditional Dutch recipes is what we call “stamppot”. This is a dish made with mashed potatoes and a leafy green, such as kale or endive, stirred through the potatoes. Stamppot is loved by many Dutchies and is often eaten in autumn and winter when the days get colder. I want to share a recipe for a slightly less traditional stamppot recipe: a low FODMAP sweet potato mash with spinach and goat cheese.
I have to admit that I am not a fan of stamppot or mashed potatoes in general. It is one of the few dishes that I really really dislike. But after 5 years of blogging and many requests for a low FODMAP mashed potato recipe later, I thought it was time to share a stamppot recipe with you. Because the fact that I don’t like it, doesn’t mean my readers can’t enjoy it ;)
Low FODMAP sweet potato mash with spinach
I love the combination sweet potato, spinach and goat cheese. And as I wanted to make a stamppot that I would also enjoy, I decided to use these flavours in this recipe. I made a low FODMAP sweet potato mash with spinach and goat cheese. Because sweet potato is only limited low FODMAP up to 75 gram per serving, I also added normal potatoes and parsnip to the mash. Like this you get a yummy sweet potato mash where you can definitely taste the sweet potatoes, but you are still within a safe low FODMAP limit.
To give the dish some extra flavour and texture, I added sundried tomatoes, chopped walnuts and goat cheese. And wow that is a great combination! It gives the mashed sweet potatoes a lot of extra flavour.
In the Netherlands, stamppot is eaten as a main dish, but if you want you can also serve this sweet potato mash as a side dish.
