Garlic Roasted Purple Potatoes

Did you know potatoes this beautiful existed? Well, they do and I have good news for you.  These purple potatoes are healthier than white potatoes and taste just as good, if not better!  You can pretty much substitute these potatoes for any recipe calling for a white potato.  Roast them, mash them, bake them.  Options are endless.  These purple potatoes have around 4x the amount of antioxidants contained in normal Russet potatoes (remember, purple = good).  That’s real life.  Healthy food can taste good too! You can find these at farmer’s markets or certain grocery stores (best bet is those that specialize in organic foods like Whole Foods). Leave the skin on when you cook them.  The skin is pretty thin, but it has a lot of nutritional content. So, let’s roast some potatoes, shall we?
