It’s getting colder outside again and it rains regularly, really time for stew. I always like stews with lots of vegetables in them. The nice thing about stew is that you can go many ways with it. And not unimportant children generally also find it very tasty, especially with smoked sausage. Broccoli mash is a stew that is not well known, so many people do not eat it often.
However, broccoli mash is super easy to make, because you use few pans and the dish is ready quickly. You also need few ingredients, so it is also a dish that is not expensive to make. All good reasons to regularly put broccoli stew on the table.
I make this stew with parsnip puree, as a substitute for potatoes. The children find this very tasty and during the day they already have enough carbohydrates on us through their bread in the morning and at noon.
