How great are purple potatoes? They were our most recent “try a new food a week” purchase from the Farmers Market. They bring a comfort food to a new dynamic level. I made the Southwestern potatoes from The Minimalist the other night and they were delicious. I picked some thyme and sage, but ended up throwing in cilantro instead. Combined with the beans, corn, and green onions our boring dinner of potatoes ended up causing a fight over the leftovers. I plan on making a bunch of variations of this recipe throughout the winter.
