It was a one-eyed, one-horned flying purple potato eater...

Sometimes you just get a song stuck in your head...Happy National Potato Day!

Purple potato trivia...
• Purple potatoes are superhealthy, full of heart-strong anthocyanin, the same stuff that makes blueberries, blackberries and red grapes yumfully good for you!
• Most grocery stores have them, or look for them at farmer's markets or health food stores. Buy organic if you can!
• Some people use "blue potatoes" and "purple potatoes" to mean the same thing. Across the Atlantic they're often referred to as truffle potatoes.
• Sub them into any potato recipe to crazy it up. Purple sweet potato fries...ohheckyes!  ;)

Have you ever tried purple potatoes? What would you combine them with? Magenta watermelon radishes? Deep green Brussels sprouts? Carrots? Edamame? Pomegranates? Paint me your palette!
What song is stuck in your head?  :)


  1. Purple gnocchi? Such a cool idea! I love it!

  2. Must remember it for Mardi would be fun along with green and yellow gnocchi. :)

  3. These recipes are STUNNING! How come I can never find purple potatoes!? These are just gorgeous....

  4. These purple potatoes look gorgeous! I'm also working on a recipe for purple potatoes, and I'm trying to think of one at the moment...something unique!
