Kapucijnerschotel (Grey Pea Dish)



A hearty, wholesome dish, kapucijnerschotel (grey pea dish) has a rather scary-looking name to non-Dutch natives. In fact, the Dutch name for grey peas, kapucijners, refers to the greyish-brown habits of the Capuchin order of monks. I sometimes call my take on the dish 'Monk's Mince' in their honor.

Prep Time: 5 minutes


Cook Time: 15 minutes


Total Time: 20 minutes



  • 4 oz bacon, diced (100 g)
  • 4 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 leek, thinly sliced
  • 1 apple, diced
  • 10 oz minced beef (285 g)
  • 1 tsp ground paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin seeds
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander seeds
  • 19 oz tinned cooked grey peas, drained (540 g)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • ---------------------
  • Sour Cream
  • Piccalilli
  • Freshly torn parsley leaves
  • Chopped red onions




Crisp the bacon in a large dry frying pan. Remove to drain on a paper towel. Now add the shallots, apple and leek to the frying pan and allow to caramelize in the bacon fat. Add the spices and the mince and brown. Toss in the drained peas. Mix. Reduce heat. Season. Serve Monk's Mince with a dollop of sour cream, piccalilly, freshly torn parsley leaves and chopped red onions.
