Tips for Purple Potatoes
I bought some purple potatoes over the weekend; does anyone have any interesting recipes I could use? Have never had purple potatoes before; but they looked interesting. Thanks
Purple potatoes are fun, but I don't distinguish a big taste difference - perhaps more "subtle" flavor than a fingerling. I think these potatoes are more waxy than starchy, so they'll hold their shape well in soups and stews! Otherwise, I'd use them like I use a Yukon Gold potato.
Slice potatoes length wise and toss with olive oil, balsamic vinegar, dried thyme, dried rosemary, freshly grated garlic and a sliced whole onion. Pour into a 9x13 roast pan and bake for an hour and a half on 375. Super easy, very delicious.
I make enough to use as a side, with baked eggs, as home fries, etc.
