Roasted Purple Potatoes & Turnips

March 2, 2010

Everyone wants to know what to do with purple potatoes!   They’re definitely unique looking, but you can eat them just like any other potato.  Here’s a great recipe to use your purple potatoes and turnips from your produce share…what makes this dish extra wonderful is using your turnips that were harvested just a few days ago!  How about that for fresh?


5 purple potatoes
5 turnips
Olive oil to coat
sea salt, cracked pepper, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder

1) Slice potatoes and turnips into bite-size pieces.

2) Place potatoes and turnips in a bowl and toss with the olive oil and seasoning until all pieces are coated.

3) Roast in a 425 degree oven for 20-30 minutes.  Toss halfway through cooking.   Enjoy!

    We used the purple potatoes with the cage-free eggs and pork sausage and onion to make breakfast burritos. Quick easy, and with the CM southwestern tortillas delicious!

    As one who got to enjoy the fruits of the labor on this one, I can say that this is one tasty dish. Thumbs up from the Taylors.

    I also like steven’s recipe of using bacon grease!

    I just made this! I added one of the onions that came in my bin, I tossed it in about 5 minutes before it was done. This is my first bin and I am so excited about trying new vegetables!
