Blue potato frittata

How about a dash of extra colour for a twist on a tasty dish?


Blue potato frittata

We might be more familar with white potatoes, but purple or blue potatoes which also originated in South America, tend to be less waxy and are sweeter than white-fleshed potatoes. They're also packed with even more antioxidants and flavonoids that either white potatoes or sweet potatoes.

Blue potatoes are great for baking and mashing, or you can turn your every day frittata into a mosaic with these beauties. You won't find these in the supermarket – but online marketplace Farmdrop can supply them.
