This roasted purple potatoe recipe brings back a happy, sunny afternoon from years ago. When our town would host a farmer’s market on the village green, I picked up some beautiful purple potatoes. The color was to unusual to resist, and at the time, my children were too young to think anything different. They potatoes were a deep purple color outside, and a vibrant magenta inside. The deep color of the vegetable usually means better nutrition. In this case, you can expect 4 times more antioxidants than traditional spuds. These make a great side dish, and are tastier than the bag of freezer burned french fries hanging out in the freezer.
Purple potatoes are generally smaller, which makes it easy to cut into bite size pieces. This roasted purple potatoe recipe is a hit with kids and grown ups, because it is total comfort food.
