Our favorites

The roots of potato mash

Potato mash has its roots in the traditional cuisines of northern Europe, such as the Netherlands, Belgium, and Germany. These regions, with their colder climates, had access to key ingredients like potatoes, which made potato mash a simple and accessible dish.

Taste the season

Potato mash never gets boring, especially when you give it a new twist from time to time. While we’re familiar with standard recipes, you can take your potato mash to the next level with some simple, exotic additions. Each variation has its own unique personality and pairs perfectly with different seasons. In different recipes, you can taste the flavour of a particular season, so to speak. That is exactly what makes this typically Dutch dish so much fun!

Traditional potato mash versus plant-based potato mash

The difference between the two lies in the ingredients. Traditional potato mash typically includes meat and dairy products like butter and milk, which are replaced in plant-based versions. Butter can be substituted with avocado - just mash it up! Easy, right? As for milk, you have various options, including unsweetened plant-based varieties like almond milk, oat milk, soy milk, and cashew milk. And the meat? Although it may seem irreplaceable, nothing could be further from the truth! Exotic ingredients offer the solution: sweet potatoes, butternut squash, or sugar snaps can take centre stage in your plant-based potato mash. Don’t worry; we’ll guide you with these three exotic mash recipes. If you find meat to be an essential component of potato mash, consider trying a vegetarian meat substitute. There are plenty of options available nowadays.
