I have a weakness for mashed potatoes. It's one of those dishes you can eat anytime, right? But today we're going to do it differently. We're going to give the mashed potatoes a Caribbean makeover. Caribbean? Of course!
I give the mashed potatoes the taste of Surinamese potato chutney. So nice and spicy Madame Jeanette pepper, garlic, cumin and turmeric. This changes it from a boring puree to a really tasty dish.
And the secret ingredient? That is the Natural Cloud Apple Cider Vinegar from Tromp and Rueb. The sourness of it also reminds you of that delicious Surinamese potato sambal. Trust me, you'll want to try this!
Apple cider vinegar natural cloudy from Tromp and Rueb
I made this recipe in collaboration with Tromp & Rueb. They make all kinds of different types of vinegar that you can find in the supermarket for a very reasonable price.
Let's talk about the Naturally cloudy apple cider vinegar. This is not just any vinegar, this is a flavor explosion in a bottle. It is an unfiltered variant of their successful apple cider vinegar. They select the best apple juice and ferment it into apple cider and then into apple cider vinegar.
The result? A vinegar with a softer and fuller taste. And the best part is that it is unpasteurized and contains “the mother”, the original acetic acid bacteria. This contributes to the high quality of the product. Perfect for these mashed potatoes!
This recipe is for 4 people
For the mashed potatoes:
- 500 gr potatoes
- 100 gr grated cheese
- Handful of fried bacon
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 the apple cider vinegar naturally cloudy
- 3 tablespoon milk
For the special mixture:
- 2 tbsp sunflower oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic, chopped
- 1 Madame Jeanette pepper, finely chopped
- 1 tl cumin powder
- 1 tsp turmeric
Preparation of the Caribbean Mashed Potatoes
1. Boil the potatoes until done. Drain them and mash them together with the butter, vinegar and milk into a fine puree.
2. Heat the sunflower oil in a pan. Fry the onion, garlic and Madame Jeanette pepper. Add the cumin powder and turmeric and stir well.
3. Mix this special mixture through the mashed potatoes. The puree now has a beautiful yellow color and a wonderful smell.
4. Grease an oven dish with butter and put the mashed potatoes in the dish. Sprinkle with the grated cheese and the fried bacon.
5. Place the dish under the grill for about 15 minutes, until the cheese has melted and there is a crispy crust.
And that's it: your Caribbean mashed potatoes are ready! This dish is delicious as a side dish with a meat or fish dish, but can also stand alone. Enjoy your meal!
