STOEMP FOR THE LAST EVENING
more participants at Jenny Matlock's Alphabet Thursday
During the whole week of their stay in our house, Claudie and Melissa hadn't tasted anything typical of the Belgium cuisine, except of course the wafels. So for the last evening I prepared or rather bought at a cattering service STOEMP. It's typical Belgian dish and the word stems from the Brussels' dialect
It consists of pureed or mashed potatoes, with one or more vegetables, such as onions, carrots, leeks, spinach, green peas and cabbage, seasoned with thyme and laurel.The stoemp is a very popular dish, rural, simple and enjoys wide appeal. There are restaurants specialized in the preparation of stoemp (pronounced stump).
Stoemp is traditionally served with fried white or black boudin (pudding, sausage), grilled bacon, fried eggs, or chops sometimes also with fish. In fact you can use whatever you want even a grilled burger.
I choose the stoemp with carrots together with a sausage.
and they enjoyed it very much.
