There's nothing better than a pan of savory, colorful root veggies, especially purple potatoes. They’re not always available at the grocery store, but when they are I get them.
Here are some purple potato facts: they're from Peru and Bolivia and very popular all over South America. The main varieties are Purple Majesty, Purple Viking and Purple Peruvian. In addition to brightening up any dish with their striking purple color, they have a nutty flavor and they’re super healthy! Half a cup contains 70 calories, 15 grams of carbs, 1 gram of fiber, 2 grams of protein, no fat, and they act as an antioxidant.
Mix the purple potatoes with other colors for a beautiful and delicious meal.
