Utrecht casserole with ‘rookworst’


Tags: Meats & Fish

250 grams brown beans
1 kilogram carrots
5 onions
1 kilogram potatoes
2 Granny Smith apples
1 ‘rookworst’ or 250 grams bratwurst
1 tbsp flour
40 grams butter
salt and pepper

Soak the beans for 24 hours in cold water. Cook the beans in the same water for about 45 minutes. In the meantime, peel and slice the onions, peel and quarter the apples and take out the cores. Finely chop the carrots, peel and wash the potatoes, then slice them. Add the potato slices, apples, onion rings and chopped carrots to the beans. Make sure that the water level is over all the ingredients (if not, add some water). Boil the vegetables/apples for about 20 minutes, add the ‘rookworst’ or bratwurst for the last 10 minutes.

Drain but keep the water and thicken it with the prepared flour, add the butter and season to taste. Serve the casserole with the sausage and sauce.
