Purple food, that is.
I have had purple carrots, purple peppers,
purple cauliflower, purple potatoes
I didn't go looking for it.
It was just there waiting for me to find it.
There is a line from a song I am reminded of;
Sometimes finding you is just like trying to
smell the color nine.
Well, I am here to tell you purple does
NOT have a flavor.
All of the aforementioned items taste no different
from their more ordinarily hued counterparts.
But I will say this, do NOT mash purple potatoes.
They turn gray and it's just bad.
Here's what I did with the asparagus
I wrapped the spears with a slice of cheese and then a slice of ham
and had Mike grill them. These are really
supposed to be wrapped with prosciutto but the sodium
count on that was off the charts so I went with
canadian style deli ham slices.
I served them with a great salad and some
Naan bread warmed on the grill.
Perfect little hot weather dinner!
Oh, and I do peal my asparagus.
I don't know if it's been proven but I don't have
"woody" asparagus when I do.
