I get a weekly box of vegetables from my CSA, and invented this recipe to use up my carrots and kale. The carrot crust is my invention, adapted from a zucchini crust I found in The Moosewood Cookbook (1977)--the original They Draw and Cook.
Every time we'd visit my grandmother as kids she'd make stoemp and sausage for us, and we'd grind mounds of parsley on top. She doesn't cook a lot of things, but this simple Belgian recipe was guaranteed to be on the table at least one night we were there-- and sometimes she'll still make it when we're visiting together. It's a nice, easy meal that I've made a bunch in college too! Most of the ingredients are things I tend to keep around anyway, and the sausage could be substituted for other kinds of sausage or really anything else you like! And the best part, it always tastes like family and home.
