Mashed Purple Potatoes w. Whipped Goat Cheese
I love flying Jet Blue. You get treated like a human, there is a healthy amount of space and best of all, you have access to unlimited snacks. Even though I was really tempted by the cookies the last time I flew, my go-to snacks are the mini bags of blue chips. One time they even had sweet potato mixed in and it was heaven. Call me crazy but even after eating several bags, it never struck me that I could find potatoes similar to these at a specialty grocery store. So when I saw them on Melissa’s website, I had to try them for real.
These baby potatoes are just plain awesome. 1) they are mini sized and as we all discussed earlier, anything in miniature form is 10x better than the norm and 2) they are purple. You really can’t ask for a better combination. I had a fun time creating this recipe – it was a combination of several things I had on hand and a short mashed potato tasting. The goat cheese really pulls everything together and the pine nuts add delicious texture.
A big thank you to Melissa’s for providing the baby purple potatoes. And thank you to you for supporting all of FashionEdible’s collaborations!
