Typical Dutch: Mashpot Blote Billen in het Gras

This is a recipe that I loved to eat as a child and still have on the menu now. It is a mashpot with white beans and green beans. In the Netherlands we call this naked bums in the grass mashpot. I am sure you can understand why ;) Mostly when we make mashpot we use milk and butter, but in this mashpot I always use some creme fraiche. Because it just gives it a little extra flavour. The recipe is really easy and because you don't have to cook any fresh veggies, it is a quick mashpot too.

Mashpot Blote Billen in het Gras: (serves 2-3)
- 500 gr potatoes
- 1 jar (680 gr) white beans and cut green beans combination or about 350 gr of each
- 125 ml creme fraiche
- pinch of salt and pepper

Peel, cut and boil the potatoes. Rinse the beans in a colander. Then put them in a bowl and warm them in the microwave just before the potatoes are done. Drain them in the collander onces more, or else you will get too much fluids in your mashpot. Drain the potatoes and make a mash of them with the creme fraiche. Stir the beans through the mash and season with some salt and pepper.
We served them with some cheese sticks. But you can serve them with vegetarian sausages too.
