Every wonder what to do with purple potatoes? You could make purple potato salad which usually ends up being gray. Blue/ Purple potato soup, that is so passé after Renée Zellweger cooked it for Colin Firth in “Bridget Jones’ Diary”. Purple mashed, maybe not. Purple potato slices with crème fraîche and caviar, maybe if I ate caviar which I don’t. I just read Angie’s post today with Rainbow Kale Pizza using purple potatoes. Now that sounds delicious.
Out of ideas? I did the research for you. Here’s a recipe to showcase your purple potatoes in style. Notice how the salmon color contrasts with the purple potatoes. Tasty and visually pleasing. Enjoy! I’m taking my color coordinated meal to Fiesta Friday with hosts Angie, Andrea and Sylvia
Top potatoes with the parsley, olive oil mixture and bake at 400 F for 20 minutes until golden and crisp. Serve warm with your main dish. I baked a salmon filet wrapped in foil for 20 minutes along side the potatoes. Salmon is fabulous with a dash of salt and pepper and a squeeze of lemon.
