(For 4 portions)

- Peel potatoes, cut into pieces and wash.

To finish off:
- Spoon a sturdy scoop of warm mash into the center of each plate. Divide some stir-fried white cabbage ribbons over this.
- Spoon some butter from the pan around each preparation.
- Finish with the pumpernickel crusts, the Lupine Cress and some broken hazelnut.
