Crushed Purple Potatoes

Crushed Purple Potatoes @EclecticEveryday

I did these cute little purple potatoes last week and forgot to share them here. They were really simple and delicious. I just used fresh parsley, but you can add as many fresh herbs as you like to season them.

    I have been looking for purple potatoes for ages! The look of them is so joyfully odd, much like myself, I dare think 😉

    Purple veggies seem to be popping up everywhere. It is thought the color is a powerful anti-oxidant. I was wondering why these potatoes need to be crushed though?
