Name the Vegetable! What did I slice and bake last week?
Continuing our Food Revolution…I have been using all sorts of different fruits and veggies in my cooking. (Many thanks to my produce club subscription – Annie’s Organic Produce Buying Club.)
Well, this week we received something that I certainly had never heard, seen or tasted before. What do you think it is? I’ll let you know that it is a vegetable that I sliced and baked. (Hint: It is not a beet.)
Person with the best guess gets a big pat on the back – aren’t I generous!?
Congrats to @greenandhealthy of healthychild.org who tweeted the right guess! The mysterius vegetable is an organic PURPLE POTATO!
I used the potato as a replacement for a traditional white potato in a casserole dish. The taste was richer than a white potato and worked great. The look, deep purple, was actually amusing to look at. My husband kept thinking I was making beets!
