Purple Potato Mash

26 Sep

I am a potato lover!!!!! So let’s show some love to the purple potato too…

Nothing to be afraid of. It tastes just as delicious as any waxy potato.

Here’s how I make them…


3-4 baby purple potatoes, quartered
1 tbs of butter
¼ cup of blue cheese crumbles
½ cup of pickled red onions, drained
1 handful of shredded 6 cheese blend
1 tbs toasted sliced almonds
Salt and Freshly Cracked Black Pepper
  1. Boil the potatoes just like any other potato… placing them in a medium pot with water almost covering the potatoes. Salt liberally. Place over medium-high heat. Cover the pot and bring to a boil. When the water is boiling and steam is starting to escape the lid, turn the heat to medium low and boil/steam until the potatoes are tender for about 10-15 minutes.
  2. When the potatoes are tender, drain all the water and in that same pot you cooked the potatoes in, leave the potatoes and add the butter and blue cheese crumbles. Mash them well.
  3. When the potato mixture looks homogeneous, add in the pickled red onions and stir them in. Season with freshly cracked pepper.
  4. Transfer mash to a large ramekin or oven-safe dish. Sprinkle with shredded cheese and the toasted almonds. Bake in a 350F oven until the cheese on top melts and gets golden brown.

Great and unexpected potato side dish… or as a main dish casserole with a nice green salad.

    A mi tambien me encantan las papas pero nunca habia visto una violeta. ¿Son mas dulces que las otras?

      Yo las encuentro con un sabor muy similar… las compro en un paquete que vienen surtidas – Yukon Gold, Rojas y Purple. Las compro en Costco. Y las cocino siempre junto con las otras. creo que al color ser diferente esperas que haya una diferencia en sabor, pero no.

    Love the blue cheese and almond combination. The pickled onions are a unique touch. Have you ever had Japanese purple sweet potatoes? Those are also great for different twists on tater dishes.

    Yo no sabia que exisitian papas moradas. Ese puré debe ser muy rico.

    Yo creo que no tengo papas moradas aqui en españa

      verdad Ani??? Acá en Puerto Rico las consigo en Costco, uno de estos almacenes de comida que traen muchos productos de Estados Unidos. Aunque creo que son oriundas del Perú/Sur América. Espero que las consigas, y si no, haz la receta con papas o PATATAS regulares. Me imagino que sabrá igual de deliciosa…
