Little did I know, but kokosbrood turns out to be a Dutch invention! Translated as ‘coconutbread’, it’s something to put ON TOP OF bread. It usually contains gelatin or sometimes honey or even smashed insects, but now there’s also a vegan version! 🎉 If you’re Dutch you probably ate this as a child so time to get nostalgic.
If you’re never had this before and wonder what the fuck it is. It’s basically grated coconut with starch and heaps of sugar. Packed in slices the same size as a slice of bread.
So the main kokosbrood producer Theunisse created a vegan one, look out for the package which says ‘biologisch glutenvrij’ (organic & glutenfree). At the moment only available at Deen supermarkets, though not all of them. All Amsterdam locations have them except the one at Rijnstraat and the one at Lange Vonder.
