Filosoof is the Dutch variant of the world widely known shepherd’s pie. Also known as philosopher’s stew, it is an exquisite combination of minced beef, onion, mushrooms, brown beans, potatoes, red wine and spicy paprika powder. Some recipes suggest adding in filosoof apples or prunes, but in most of the cases it depends on personal preferences. To make it an exceptional delight, filosoof may use some accompaniments such as green beans with toasted almonds or apple sauce.
In Netherlands, filosoof is served with many other dishes, or it also can be a single dish savored on a daily basis.
