Blue Potato Stir Fry

Last year while browsing through a gardening catalog my friend Jeannie gave me I came across blue potatoes. Fascinated I researched and wrote an article about the nutritional benefits of blue potatoes and published it at Triond. There is a link provided in my side bar and I ordered the seeds. They are growing on Jeannie's farm now.

The other day she called me and advised that she was in Kroger and ran across a bag of blue potatoes called Purple Passion "2 bite" potatoes. She split the bag with me so I made this stir fry.

  • 1 lb potatoes halved or quartered
  • 1 lb carrots sliced in 1/2 slices
  • 1 lb turnips or rutabagas diced to 1 in cubes
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 6 sprigs fresh thyme or 1 tsp dry thyme (optional)
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • Diced spring onions (optional)
  • Diced baby carrots (optional)
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter or oleo
Combine all but water and butter in 12 inch heavy frying pan. Saute until vegetables are browned, about 8 minutes.  Add water to skillet and bring to boil. Boil until fork inserts into potato easily. 

Transfer vegetables to serving platter with slotted spoon. Drizzle with remaining juices from cooking.  You may want to serve with fish or chicken. Enjoy!

Judy, I can't wait to try this - sounds delicious! I'll let you know how it turns out. But first, I'll have to unearth those potatoes!(smile)

This is a great post. Glad I stopped by this evening to see your pictures and discover your recipe.

I don't see blue potatoes around here in the markets. Would love to try this one day. Looks delicious.

I've been seeing these blue potatoes at our grocery store but I haven't bought any. After reading your recipe I think I'll give them a try.

I love these blue potatoes, I think they are the same as purple potatoes. I had a post on SS about them, they are one of the power foods- like blueberries.
