Traditional dutch food

I would like to give you some Amsterdam and Dutch recipes. We like to eat pea soup, brown bean soup, hustpot and Amsterdam cheese (real old cheese.
We in Holland really love cheese. A dutchman eats 17.5 pounds of cheese a year..:)

Here a few recipes:



1 kg winter carrots
1 kg potatoes
500 grams onions
1 beef bouillon cube
Smoked sausage
Pepper and salt

Boil the potatoes 15 to 20 minutes, meanwhile cut the onions into pieces and winter carrots in strips. Boil the carrots and onions along with the beef bouillon cube about 20 minutes.
Pour the aardapplen and add to vegetables together in a pan and coarse pitch.
Then heat the smoked sausage. Then the stew seasoned with pepper and salt.
The smoked sausage may separately or in the stew should be.
A delicious meal when it’s freezing outside.
