Recept: groene kool met pompoenstamppot

Groenekool

Stamppot hoeft niet per se van aardappels gemaakt te worden. Je kan in plaats hiervan ook bijvoorbeeld pastinaak of pompoen nemen.

Ingrediënten

pompoen
bouillon
groene kool
een scheutje sojamelk
olie
zout

olie
ui
prei
juspoeder
ketchup
water

Bereiding

Groene pompoen schillen, oranje pompoen alleen als dat nodig is. De groene pompoen is over het algemeen zoeter dan de oranje. In stukjes snijden en opzetten in water met een bouillonblokje. De groene kool zo klein mogelijk gesneden erbij doen. Pompoen is over het algemeen iets eerder gaar dan aardappel. Je kan het op dezelfde manier testen door er met een vork in te prikken.

In een bakpan de olie verhitten. Ui en prei zachtjes bakken. Als het zacht en gaar is de ketchup, het juspoeder en water toevoegen. Eventueel nog kruiden toevoegen. Roeren tot een mooie jus ontstaan is.

Als de pompoen gaar is afgieten. Olie, sojamelk en zout toevoegen. Stampen.

In Grave Danger of Falling Food

categorieën: films, Permacultuur

Bill Mollison, Australian designer and author, thinks the greatest threat to our planet is agriculture. He maintains that modern agricultural practices are destroying our soil and water and produce increasingly poisonous food. His alternative is the 'permaculture' concept which turns even the smallest city garden into a fertile eco-system that can provide most of the food for an average family.

Permaculture is a design system which actualizes an environmental ethic, and which enriches the quality of human life by learning directly from nature. In this context, the term quality of life is a broadly inclusive concept which recognises that human well -being is inextricably linked to the health of the land.

"Permaculture is a philosophy and a practical approach to sustainable design in all aspects of life. It is a framework upon which to hang the ideas from many disciplines, an integrative method which enables us to design systems in which all elements work together in an integrated whole, including people, plants, buildings, animals and natural forces such as the sun and wind.".

This is not intended as an introduction to permaculture. The appendix contains a short summary of the basic principles of permaculture design.

Permaculture ultimately transgresses a debate between an anthropocentric or biocentric view of nature, as it adopts a non-dualistic view of humans and nature, where there is no division between people and nature, such that nature does not become a space hypostatised as 'other' and not 'me'. Instead, "to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community" is seen as a integral to preserving a viable human community.
