For 4-6 servings:
1.5 kg potatoes, peeled and cut in half
1 kg sauerkraut, finely chopped
2 bay leaves
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
Cook the potatoes, sauerkraut, bay leaves and peppercorns, in water enough to cover. Cover and simmer on medium heat.
When the vegetables are cooked drain the water ( kept it separately), remove the bay leaves and mash. Add some water (from the potatoes and sauerkraut), little by little, until you get the consistency of a puree.
Add the olive oil and mix well.
Variation: you can add a few tablespoons of nutritional yeast.
Note: Stamppot is a traditional Dutch dish and consists of mashed potatoes mixed with various ingredients like sauerkraut, carrots+ onions, kale, etc.
