Power to the Purple Potato! This week’s Meatless Monday recipe is a vibrant side dish to liven up your Thanksgiving table. Think of purple potatoes as a seasonal substitute for blueberries…they both contain the powerhouse antioxidant, anthocyanin, which gives them their bright, blue/purple color. Purple potatoes are not nutritionally like their often demonized cousin, the white potato. A recent study found that eating purple potatoes helped to lower blood pressure without causing any weight gain. One key point to note: eat purple potatoes with the skins on for maximum benefit!
