Recept: zomerstamppotaardappelsalade


Stamppot is niet alleen een lekkere maaltijd in de winter, ook in de lente en zomer kan deze gegeten worden. Vooral bij een groot aanbod van spinazie, raapsteeltjes, postelein, zevenblad, snijbiet, bietenloof of andere groene blaadjes is dit een goed idee.

Als er een restje overblijft en je die liever niet opwarmt - vanwege het voorkomen van nitriet in opnieuw opgewarmde bladgroente - kan je dit de volgende dag koud eten als aardappelsalade.

De hoeveelheden zijn afhankelijk van het restje dat over is.


- restje stamppot
- augurken
- bosui
- komkommer
- bospeen
- elke andere groente die voorhanden is
- zout
- scheutje (balsamico)-azijn of citroensap
- mayo- of veganaise of yofuknoflooksaus


Snij alle groenten in kleine stukjes.
Meng alles door elkaar.

Historically, food security was the responsibility of ministries of agriculture but today that has changed: decisions made in ministries of energy may instead have the greatest effect on the food situation. Recent research reporting that a one degree Celsius rise in temperature can reduce grain yields by 10 per cent means that energy policy is now directly affecting crop production. Agriculture is a water-intensive activity and, while public attention has focused on oil depletion, it is aquifer depletion that poses the more serious threat. There are substitutes for oil, but none for water and the link between our fossil fuel addiction, climate change and food security is now clear.

While population growth has slowed over the past three decades, we are still adding 76 million people per year. In a world where the historical rise in land productivity has slowed by half since 1990, eradicating hunger may depend as much on family planners as on farmers. The bottom line is that future food security depends not only on efforts within agriculture but also on energy policies that stabilize climate, a worldwide effort to raise water productivity, the evolution of land-efficient transport systems, and population policies that seek a humane balance between population and food. Outgrowing the Earth advances our thinking on food security issues that the world will be wrestling with for years to come.
