Does Purple Power make you think of Barney? Think again, its really the power of purple potatoes. That may seem strange for the American shopper but these colorful veggies are common in South American dishes. You may find them in health food stores and organic markets described as "blue potatoes". Whether you call them blue or purple, the color in these potatoes is part of their power. These South American purple potatoes are as antioxidant rich as kale or spinach.
The purple/blue potato can be prepared baked, boiled or mashed. Just don't ruin a good thing by frying and drowning them in grease. With the added antioxidants and full bodied flavor, you can enjoy potatoes without over-doing it. That's a plus for managing weight while also boosting nutrition.
Purple potatoes are not only delicious and nutritious, but a conversation starter around the table.
