Blue Potatoes

I've never cooked with these before, any ideas?

I was thinking of just cutting them and drizzling with olive oil and some herbs, but I'm tired of that!

    They make a beautiful cold salad with an equal amount of fresh lightly steamed green beans, some carrot shreds and roasted red pepper strips and a basil vinaigrette. Toss in some grated parmesan, too.

      The colored ones aren't that great for mashing. Their texture is kinda grainy... I like them for roasting or even better, frying... :) We make awesome hashbrowns with them! :)

        I just made some blue ones a couple of nights ago on the grill and they were great. In the past, I've steamed them and roasted them, and they were wonderful that way too. Really, they're just a spud of a different color. :-)
